Jake and Murf are off to a decent start after saving/ recruiting/ being saved by their drummer Jim. Brooticus is getting back together. Jake having what seems to be a new will to live and the drive to keep on, Murf and Jake defeat the initial Veldar they were after when finding Jim. Only to be saved by her soon after they gift her with a drumset imbued with The Heavy.
Jake, Johann, and Jim are reunited. Brooticus is ready to go on tour. First things first, the van needs gas and the band needs grub. Everyone clinking their coffee mugs together in excitement, ready for the next set. All to be cut short when a very large Veldar attacks the city. Brooticus mobilizes, struggling to keep the tempo in their hardest battle yet.
This series just keeps on delivering. I can’t help but find myself fanboying out at every turn when they do something awesome or just plain out metal. This series hits me very much at home and if you yourself have ever been in a band or just enjoy music with friends. This is a good series to pick up.
The artwork is still as impressive as ever. Having the aesthetic of a high schooler headbangers doodles where his notes should be. You can almost hear your favorite razor sharp jams as the group fights the Veldar. The levels of metal camp juxtaposed with the greatness that is its grim environment bring me a smile that would make the Joker jealous.
