There’s a sequence in this issue where our main character, Marty, gets thrown into the back of a van with a bag over his head.

So what we get are nine panels of total blackness for three pages. I’d call that…less than ideal.

At least Marty, and our other main character Bernice, are likeable. So there’s that.

This feels like Clerks II meets…well, the closest ones I can come up with are Dexter and Breaking Bad. I mean that in the sense that there’s a fear of getting caught in a series of crimes. Not murder or meth dealing, mind you. But crimes nonetheless.

I’m not sure if it’s sad or not that, having worked in the food service industry for a number of years, I can relate to our main character wanting to change his life by doing something big. Maybe not a big money grab. But still, I get it…
