New from Image, Sins of the Black Flamingo #1 goes for the gutsy presentation.

It’s a five-issue miniseries, and wastes no time getting us acquainted, tainted, and entertained.

Sebastian Harlow is a Miami thief. Going by the nickname Black Flamingo, he nabs from the rich, well, because they have such cool stuff!
He’s flamboyant, narcissistic, and handsomely wholly over the top.

Writer Andrew Wheeler writes smart and sassy scenes, keeping the flaming embers hot under the collar, with plenty of good-looking people up to no good.
Artist Travis Moore renders gorgeous environments and bent people (superb colouring by Tamra Bonvillain). He shows us the naked truth of the skin-deep, the hot showering of beautifully ripped midsections, the multi-rainbowed antics of a gay enchanted evening. (Lettering by Aditya Bidikar)

This one is so fun to read; part tease, part occult mystery, part stage show, totally engrossing and engaging.

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!!
