It’s All Downhill From Here (Bad Luck Chuck #2 Comic Review)

REVIEW: BAD LUCK CHUCK #2

Writer: Lela Gwenn
Artist: Matthew Dow Smith
Colours: Kelly Fitzpatrick
Letters: Frank Cvetkovic
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics

Synopsis: Chuck’s superpower is bad luck, and she’s found a way to monetize it. But Bad Luck isn’t just bad for one person, and sometimes the repercussions aren’t properly predictable.

Review: I am wildly in love with this story. I already said it in the first review and the second issue delivered on everything. The breakneck pace doesn’t slow down, but in this issue, we get more of Chuck’s history. The layers and nuance woven directly into the story are coming in to play here. We are seeing more of Chuck’s world, more of her neuroses, and exactly what happens when you try to monetize bad luck. Further, we get a bit more insight into who is chasing her, and what kind of trouble she’s stepped in.

The art and colours are still just as vibrant and moody as before, and the brooding atmosphere tells as much of a story as the dialogue. I recommend this book on the art alone. The awesome story is a bonus. (Okay but really, this all ties in together and it’s perfect.)

Kai’s Thoughts: I’m just gonna hype this book up forever. I cannot stress how much fun it is to read. The idea of monetizing bad luck tickles me and strikes a chord deep in my soul. Lela Gwenn is an awesome writer and I am looking forward to seeing what sort of ending she’s got in store for us, and for Chuck. Definitely keep an eye on Lela – this kid is going places.
