lockjaw 2First of all, I wanted to take the time to wish a very safe, fun, and Happy Easter on April fool’s day of all days. Hopefully, the Easter Bunny brought you something good and that he didn’t play that big of a prank on you. This past Wednesday was a very heavy load of comics that came out that I haven’t seen like this in a very long time. One of the comics that came out was the second issue of Lockjaw and it was a comic that I wanted to check out because business looked like it was going to pick up. In the previous issue of Lockjaw, Lockjaw leaves his home of Attilan to take a journey of sorts as he teleports himself to New York where he stumbles in to Demolition Man who no longer has his powers. We find out that he is visiting various family members of his, but unlucky to the D-Man, he gets transported to the Savage Lands with Lockjaw. In this issue, D-Man and Lockjaw meet Ka-Zar and his trusty sidekick Zabu and together they’ll fear the legend of the beast that haunts the Savage Lands.

savage landsI have to say that out of the two issues that I have read so far from this series, this has to be one of the funniest ones. It’s one of those comics that chooses to take the comedy route which was probably the best decision they made if I was going to be completely honest. As I have said before, there is only so much you can do with a character that doesn’t talk and they made the right choice. The dynamics between D-Man, Lockjaw, and the other two are just absolutely hilarious. Then there is a special appearance from another character that I won’t give away right now, but that tells you where the comic is heading for the future issues. So, I thin it’s safe to say that I am definitely excited about the future when it comes to Lockjaw and I think you should be too because the writing is great. The other factor that works about this comic is the artwork as well. Villa does do a great job bringing the characters to life and he helps bring the comedy to life. This comic book was a step up in a big way because others have disappointed me before. Check it out for yourself and check out my grades below:
