Image Comics brings you a vigilante from the future wearing a skull mask in Bonehead on its first volume, or should I say “Book One.”

So what happens when you took training of Class in Pain 101 with the instructor Casey Jones, then read the Robocop comic from Boom!, played the latest Spiderman video game, and played Dissidia Final Fantasy games, you’ll get this book right out of some rat’s ass. Supposedly, this graphic novel is nothing more like a stereotype of the ninja turtles. But the comic included a robot hero wearing a mask and reacts more like a human being. He’s more like Casey Jones but this one is a different story.

The story starts in the future of megalopolis that is spawning the Boneheads which are parkour-gangs that use some neuron helmets to have some abilities and live for the thrill of physical risk. So basically they actually test subjects to see how the brain neuron tests to prove that these are superhuman. But there’s one person who can change the future which is 56. A mysterious “Bonehead” without a past, 56 is willing to have his abilities to use much further for the sake of the future of the city. Despite every action that the Boneheads jumps from panel to panel, they seemed to be trained more intensive as ninjas, it’s a long ride but it’s a never-ending sight of action.

No one knows about Bonehead 56’s past, but he’s willing to fight. The last thing I would go for is about the plot and the theory of the story, I do get that there’s all the technology in the world to experiment the Bonehead gangs with neuron helmets, but this isn’t a game. Even though, the doctor actually needs a hero to save the city like one other guy who also wears a helmet called Blackdeath just to save the city and set it free without violence. What’s more important is that this comic focuses on jumping and leaping through buildings like Spiderman, but somehow observing this comic with some characters who can jump high can be provided with the study of anatomy and action poses. And the art is not that bad, it’s very thrilling to transform from Casey Jones to a cyborg vigilante. The characters are amazing but what’s more important is their movements it’s like they feel like they’re in control of their bodies, that is much more than reading a manga called “Air Gear” where teenagers are using some extraordinary rollerblades to fight or watching one of the extreme sports or something. If you rather want to read something more awesome, then Bonehead is just for you.
