Steingroot, Jacob – Zod #8



Zod #8

I’ve never bothered with any sort of formal ratings system on this site, mostly because I don’t think the vast majority of these comics can be boiled down as simply as “Great! 8 out of 10!”. That being said, if I had some sort of formal adorability rating, this one would have to be close to the top of the scale. It’s printed in full and vibrant color, which is rare enough in the mini comics world, and the drawings look at times like they were done by a small child with access to all the crayons in the world. I mean that in the best possible way, of course. Thanks to the handy recap at the start of the book (people doing serial comics, take note), we’re instantly up to speed on the fact that Odysseus is out exploring the universe with his assistant Lloyd, and Odysseus’s son Miles has gone out looking for his dad after being concerned with the wooing being done to Penelope, the wife of Odysseus, by penguins. This issue only deals with the men, as Miles falls in with a touring rock group who are also secretly super heroes on the side, and Odysseus and Lloyd confront a giant octopus who just so happens to be the son of Poseidon. A fun comic all around, this is also one that you could leave lying around for your hypothetical kids or younger relatives to read without a care in the world. That’s assuming that kids still read, and I have no information on that but let’s just say I’m not terribly optimistic. Anyway, it’s a fun read for those who aren’t in a completely cynical state of mind. $2
