Re-read kill or be killed volume 1 and finally got to volume 2
Brubaker and Phillips together have produced some of the best comics over the last couple of decades and this is maybe their finest moment yet.
I don’t think Phillips has ever looked so good. I mean, his art has always been great from back in the 2000ad/magazine days, but I feel it’s gone up another level.
There’s a great mix of inventive storytelling techniques here that sets this book apart from the others they have done together.
The design of the book is amazing as well. In the trades l love the full red page break between chapters. The colours in general from everything to the design to the panels themselves is superb.
Smith’s painted art for Dylan’s fathers painted erotic art is sublime.
Looking forward to reading volume 3 later this week. I hope this series runs a bit longer than Fatale. I feel there’s enough mileage in it for a good 30 to 40 issue run.
I know Wallace has been raving about it continually for over a year, but if you are not reading this you really ought to give it a try, especially if you are a fan of the creative team.
