Thoughts about #1.
Just look at that cover? It’s a giant ape dressed in Napoleonic clothing riding a giant armoured unicorn while below stone age men get ripped apart by killer robots. That sort of fucking genius you don’t get in Secret Wars or whatever tedious nonsense is shat out from Marvel or DC these days.
So after last issue we left Nathan T. Rex having to make an exploitation film, Sister Bambi, with his amazonian Nazi producer, and this issue takes us into even more ludicrous territory as Rex heads to Kapala Island, somewhere that looks suspiciously like King Kong’s Skull Island.
Unfortunately for Rex he’s had to promise the lead role of Sister Bambi to his Nazi producer, so this means he has to tell Coconut that she’s not got the part, but he seeks advice.
Just as Nathan tries to tell Coconut of his little problem he comes across a massive pair of bollocks. Yes, that’s right.
Of course these giant balls belong to a giant ape and there follows a fight between mass-murdering lunatic Darwin and the ape which is both fantastic and ridiculous at the same time. Needless to say there’s only one victor.
The Auteur: Sister Bambi manages to ramp up the stakes all the time while becoming increasing mad which makes this an amazingly readable comic as there’s not a bloody chance that anyone can actually work out what’s going to happen next. Writer Rick Spears ensures things crack along at a silly pace while throwing in some astonishingly daft, not to say brilliant. set pieces. If you’ve not been reading this comic then you really, really need to.
