Manny is still on the hunt (pardon the pun) for the missing prey tapes in this brilliant crime caper.

Manny nearly gets caught as he stumbles upon a live shoot of a prey tape being made unfortunately not up to the director’s standards. We catch a glimpse of his home life as well which can’t be going to well since he is sleeping on what must be a massive couch. He goes to see Molly who starred in the missing tapes and who he can’t help but wind up to the point where she kicks him out before giving him his only real lead, a fellow actor in the prey films.

Buck spring is now a personal trainer but also an activist against the movies and he takes manny to a showing in the hope of converting him, well that doesn’t go to plan and ends up being quite the eventful night!!

I am loving how sexuality is replaced by the thrill of hunting in the animal noir world with the gym instructor being ogled not because they are attractive but because he is prey and they pretty much want to eat him. Instead of porn movies its fake hunt movies and the idea that punters sneak steaks in to eat while watching is hilarious.

Such a clever comic that I am really enjoying

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
