David Lapham is a somewhat polarizing creator, but his new series, Young Liars has been so consistently fun and entertaining, I can’t see how anyone could complain.
This issue picks up after the last issue, in which Danny was castrated by a German midget. Sadie has run off with Runco to find his uncle’s painting, and Danny, Big C, and Donny go after them. A British guy named “Puss Bag,” who claims to be friends with Sadie tags along.
This issue provides more flashbacks that fill in the blanks about why Danny shot Sadie in the first place. These make him a somewhat more sympathetic character.
The writing his very humorous. Danny and Puss Bag get into a long argument about the virtues of American punk versus British punk, which proves to be hilarious. I hope they keep Puss Bag around, because their banter is hysterical.
Lapham’s art is excellent across the board. Lee Loughridge’s coloring make his already vibrant pencils pop even more.
This is easily the best work Lapham has done since the first few years of Stray Bullets, and it may even be better than that. After four or five years of mediocre mainstream work, David Lapham is back in the game and putting out a consistently funny, heartbreaking, and brilliant series.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 5 - Excellent
