And now the action has rampped up. The Humans are escorting a drug run into LA. All looks good for a decent amount of time. Then another gang attacks.
Which gives us 8 or so pages of just carnage. All beautifully drawn,inked and colored.
The issue ends with Johnny heading off to find his old girlfriend. Who is now supposedly strung out stripper.
The Humans #05 gets a Buy.
In this issue we get a bit more of Johnny's past.Then the gang heads off to meet up with Abe.And watch a skin fight. In this world the human beings are kept as pets. And Abe runs fights between the human beings.
So the leader of The Humans comes up with a plan. He wants more money for the protection runs his gang is doing for Abe.
And his plan works. But I get the feeling Abe is gonna get his revenge.
The Humans #04 gets a Buy.
So it is the morning after the big party. Johnny wakes up and starts having Nam flashbacks.
And most of the issue is us getting to see part of what he went thru over in the war.
The rest is detailing how one of the gang members is creating a new hybrid of acid and speed.
The detail in the art this time is so damn good. I am kind of surprised at how much detail is packed into most of the pages.
The Humans #03 gets a Buy.
With the second issue it is mostly introducing us to Johnny. His brother is the leader of the gang.And Johnny was long thought dead over in Vietnam.
But Johnny is back and making his way to The Human's HQ.
Another issue of world building. But it works. The art is even better this time.
The Humans #02 gets a Buy.
I had heard about this series last year. And it sounded interesting. It is about a biker gang made up of primates. Who are called the Humans.
This first issue is pretty much a set up/world building issue. We see that a member of the gang has died and the rest of the members are on their way to bury him.
Then a rival gang shows up and we get a few pages of fights. Which has great art. I loved the one Human's member that looks like Jughead from Archie.
To wrap it up we go back to the Human's hang out. And find out a long thought dead member is on his way back.
The Humans #01 gets a Buy.
