“Oh, Killstrike” #2 – Boom Studios (Max Bemis, Logan Faerber)
This comic is absurdly funny. In fact, while reading in bed, I laughed way too hard at this issue and ended up waking up my wife. The story follows a normal guy, Jared, a new father struggling to adjust to his new status quo, while unresolved issues with his own dad linger. While looking through his attic for old 80’s comics to sell, one of his childhood anti-heroes comes to life! ‘Killstrike’ pulls himself from the panels of his book and immediately begins to seek ambiguous vengeance in the real world to no avail. Together the two venture off to find Killstrike’s creator… and possibly patch things up with Jared’s old man.
