REVIEW: M.O.D.O.K Assassin #5

Written by Christopher Yost, art by Amilcar Pinna, published by Marvel.

I tried to read the X-Files, I really did but bloody hell it’s dryer than a nuns gusset.

M.O.D.O.K is a series I’ve been looking at, a lot of the Secret Wars stuff has been pretty good but I couldn’t quite squeeze another mini series in. So I thought I have a gander while I had the opportunity.

It’s a silly comic. It’s fun, well written and has more hoots than an owl convention. It’s a popcorn comedy with a soul. M.O.D.O.K basically falls in love with a Thor and his understanding of it is all based on killing, hilarity ensues.

The writing just gets on with it and it’s matter of fact manner about giant head monsters, killer robots, evil magicians and an angel, Thor allows the humour to come from the characters and not the madness of the setting.

The art is bright and bubblegum wonderful. It makes all the limbs flying off, axe wounds and killing a proper giggle. All I would say is Pinna clearly has more fun with the wacky than the mundane and a couple of panels, here and there looks like he was in just too much of a hurry to get to the next dismemberment.

I’ll be picking this up when I find all the issues.
