Todd, The Ugliest Kid on Earth 8 (January 2014)

292177 20131231120547 largeAt this point, Kristensen and Perker have fully embraced the bit. Every scene, even if it eventually ties to another scene, is a bit. There’s a Santa bit, there’s a Joan Crawford bit, there’s a Satan’s nice kid bit. It’s all a bunch of bits strung together. The regular cast members no longer have anything to do in Todd.

Is it bad, but I’m sort of hoping for another break from the series. The creators need to reorganize, rethink. Perker tries something of a new art style this issue. It’s interesting, but there’s no point for it. The issue opens–after the lengthy new cast introductions–and seems like it might be a Christmas thing. It’s not.

As for those opening introductions. Kristensen is now using them–instead of the actual issue proper–to tell parts of the story.

Todd has pretty much run out of its accrued good will.



Writers, M.K. Perker and Ken Kristensen; artist, Perker; colorist, Sedat Gosterikli; letterer, Pat Brosseau; publisher, Image Comics.
