He’s Colonel Weird, and this is issue two of Dark Horse’s Colonel Weird: Cosmagog, from Jeff Lemire.

Lemire, the highly gifted Canadian prairie-boy-become-comic-veteran, continues to keep us agog with the unraveling of the life and times of Colonel Weird. You know, the old dude from Black Hammer. As a kid, as an old man, and everywhere in between. It’s a fractal universe, fragmented as heck. And there are a heck of a lot of dangers, and dangerous beings out there.

With art and letters by Tyler Crook, this second issue gives us some retro comic adventure, with more than a little touch of the weird. It’s a fast fast read but an entertaining one, with imaginative scenarios, well-rounded artwork, and form-fitting colour!

Dark Horse, Colonel Weird: Cosmagog #2, $3.99 for 24 pages of content

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
