HAWAIIAN DICK #3
What did the
If you are going to like a comic, it is going to be because of the artist and writer. For me, that’s true on this book. I like what B. Clay Moore and Scott Chantler are doing, and I can’t wait for the next issue.
Here comes the BUT.
But I re-read Hawaiian Dick because of Steven Griffin. Just looking inside the front cover one finds that Mr. Griffin is on covers, colors, letters, story fonts, and book design stuff. The “book design stuff” is amazing and creates an atmosphere that you can really feel. The Image logo is turned into a tiki, and I really like the books’ logo. The covers perfectly demonstrate the art tone of the book, both in their color and their style. The inside two pages are the typical recap pages, but done without fear of white space. The third page has no art or story, just color. In this issue it’s blue. When looking at the page I can hear people say, “I paid 3 bucks for them to waste a page on blue!” It’s not a waste, and I believe that it conveys how important the colors are to this book. For me, the coloring in the book is the star, often scenes in the book feel lit with actual lights. All the little things that Mr. Griffin brings to the book make it feel diferent than anything else I’m reading now, and that makes it worth the 3 bucks.
