The Cape: 1969 – Jason Ciaramella

The Cape 02This is an average story with a little bit about family and revenge that exists solely as a prequel to “The Cape.” It’s good enough to be given away on Free Comic Book Day or included in a hardcover but as a standalone it really achieves very little. It isn’t bad, maybe a little simplistic or jingoistic but there are much better reads for your time.

The art is very good and kind of reminds me of American Vampire. There are some brilliant moments when letters are combined with pictures to create a Meta view. The colouring has a dank jungle feel and makes very good use of browns.

The whole thing just felt like an ad break or a short for the main feature, which is what it is.

No Thumbs.
