Going further, The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson issue three is released by Image.

This series, concerning the adventures of washed-up former superhero Nick Wilson, has been an enjoyable one. Nick is in rough shape. His ‘manager’, for lack of a better word, has been booking him to appear at children’s birthday parties. Not a sure sign of success! Nick is looking for more; more money, less of his manager, and more to life in general. And Nick is looking for a relationship.

This issue is almost entirely about Nick’s high school reunion. It strays widely from any connection to a ‘superhero adventure’, but continues to explore the angst of a former superhero. The reunion scenes are very real; the writing is excellent, and the artwork continues to impress me: realistic but still enjoyably cartoony. The gestures and facial expressions are fluid and lifelike.

This issue is written by Marc Andreyko, with art by Stephen Sadowsky, colored by HiFi. There is a long bonus prose piece at the end of the issue, talking about the writing of the series. It’s quite interesting!

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!!
