Terminal Punks #1 Review (2020)
Summary: Young punks are on their way to their first big gig in New York when they end up trapped in the airport with a bunch of mutant freaks.
YOU CRAZY KIDS!
Young punks are on their way to their first big gig in New York when they end up trapped in the airport with a bunch of mutant freaks. Given some of the gigs I have been to, that would be an improvement!
Even though bad things are happening there doesn’t really feel the main characters are in that much danger or there are any stakes at all. I know it is only the first entry of this story but hardly anything seems to happen until it does.
Nice clean artwork and great character designs. The punks seem a bit too clean though given some of the ones I know. I don’t know if this says more about me or punks.
Having the usual gentle giant orangutan as one of the mutated freaks is meant to be a twists but it just does not seem that threatening. Chimpanzees are actually frightening even when they are not mutated, they will rip you to pieces and take 20 people to bring down. This is why Bubbles had to go to chimp jail when he got older.
Once this gets a few more entries in the story it might be worth following or in a trade paperback but as it stands I would wait.
