Bad Dog 6 (January 2014)

294207 20140131114506 largeThere’s a lot of action but also a lot of character stuff. Bad Dog’s strength has always been Kelly’s character stuff. This issue there’s also a lot of nice art from Greco. He’s got it down… in what appears to be the final issue.

It’s a double-size issue too, with Kelly doing the huge action sequence and giving himself time for cleanup. He also ties things up with all the subplots, he gives Lou the werewolf a chance to change. And so on and so on. It’s a solid comic, mostly because Kelly seems finished with it.

But it’s so solid one wants more Bad Dog. It just remains to be seen if Kelly can find a different story for him and enough hilarity. Maybe hilarity is too strong a word–amusing subplots for the vast supporting cast.

The issue’s got a nice structure too. It’s rather good.

B+

  1. Man, weren’t the first few issues of this published when you were still in Chicago? Can’t imagine why they’d do this and not just go to the collected trade…
