The F.E.D.S. #5

I always hope that readers of this site get that I appreciate anybody who tries making comics these days, that it takes an admirable perseverance to even make it up to 5 issues of a series. Which is sad, but it is what it is, especially with there being very little hope of financial reward. That being said, I’m one of those odd reviewers who doesn’t really love slamming a book, mostly because it’s always at the very least a labor of love for the creator. But this comic… oh man. One look at that cover should tell you enough and no, it’s not a parody. Most of the sentences end in exclamation points, the anatomy of the characters is at least mildly awkward and, speaking for myself as always, it’s not the kind of thing I would ever willingly read. This issue tells the origin of that guy on the cover and the meeting of the team with Lizard Man, in case you were curious about the contents. My favorite line, and one that sums the whole thing up: “I use my special power for good – not evil!” There is a fair amount of campy fun to be had here, if that’s your thing, but there’s not a whole lot else here to recommend this. $1
