COMIC REVIEW: DEAD DROP #1

Valiant Comics

Writer: Ales Kot

Artists: Adam Gorham & Michael Spicer

Price: $3.99

 

 

Valiant Comics’ next big miniseries is here with Dead Drop #1, a series that features a few great Valiant characters coming together to stop a threat from quietly wiping out humanity. The series is being told in a unique format which will focus on a different character every issue. This month features X-O Manowar as he races to intercept a virus that has the potential to swiftly end the world.

 

 

Ales Kot is the writer of the series and seems to have a good grasp of Aric. He writes the character well and successfully nails all of his quirks. Aric is still kind of lame and makes terrible jokes, but it makes for good comic relief. While the issue doesn’t present a strong plot or even much progression, it still has feel moments that feel significant to the Valiant Universe. The development of Aric is very evident in this issue as he understands the significance of the lives around and makes a few surprising calls that will cause trouble but resulted in fewer casualties right now.

As said earlier, there isn’t too much in this issue as far as story goes. The entire issue is basically one big chase with some dialogue occurring in the background. Those looking for anything deep in this issue will find themselves disappointed. However, the action that consumes almost the entire issue is very exciting and every panel is very well laid out, displaying the talent of the artistic team.

Adam Gorham and Michael Spicer together ensure that the issue looks great. Gorham’s line work is clean and the panels help to make the action progress smoothly. In a book that is almost completely action, it takes a skilled art team to make sure that the title doesn’t fail. There is a great amount of detail in this issue and no character or object appears to have been rushed. Michael Spicer’s colors are subtle but help to make Gorham’s art look its best.

Dead Drop #1 lacks a deep story, but is full of fast-paced action that never seems to slow down. The issue has a simple concept and runs with it well. Ales Kot has a great grasp on his characters, which certainly makes up for any depth the issue lacks. The art of this title is what really elevates the issue and helps it to move at a smooth pace. This is the start of an interesting series that can be enjoyed by anyone, whether they are familiar with the characters or not.
