Unlucky #3 by Matthew Hawkins
Iâ€™m going to assume that these things are just called â€œpreview minisâ€ and leave it at that. Maybe thereâ€™ll be a graphic novel of all these at some point and the name will make more sense, or maybe heâ€™s coined a new term for mini comics, but who cares when the stories are this entertaining? Two more new stories in this one. The first, possibly the best of the entire series so far (and drawn by Matthew Bernier), deals with a young vegetarian woman who inhales most of a chicken after not eating meat for 6 years. To say there were disastrous results would be a bit of an understatement, but you have to add to the mix the fact that Matthew had a serious unrequited crush on the girlâ€¦ and then she spent the better part of an evening puking and pooping in his bathroom. The next story, dealing with a random dead guy in New York (and drawn by Toby Craig), is surprisingly bland, given the subject matter. Itâ€™s mostly just Matthew and his friends driving around, trying to avoid dealing with the guy until they eventually have to call 911. Not a bad story, itâ€™s just that the previous two issues and the first story here set the bar pretty high. Also, you may notice that there are new covers for issues 1 and 2. I think theyâ€™re a vast improvement on the old covers, but Iâ€™m keeping them both up here so you can decide for yourselves and to show off how awesome and â€œold schoolâ€ I am for getting them way back when they had the old covers.
