Bonnie Lass #1 was a fun, light romp of a comic. Oozing with random violence and thinly veiled sexual innuendos, this comic seemed almost a caricature of itself. I felt like nothing was as important as making sure the reader had a good time. This is obviously a comic that doesn’t take itself seriously.
Bar fights, hostage situations, torn stockings that defy gravity, this has it all. Bonnie Lass is a vivacious young lady more concerned with her cleavage than her safety. The entire plot revolves around a scroll we see at the beginning but we never fully get details regarding it.Â After a lot of chasing, some really cool aerial views and one badass jump later, we get to see that there is a bad guy in the night…just waiting to make his move.
Michael Mayne and Tyler Fluharty have a funny little story going here. I enjoyed the lightness of the plot, it had the same feeling that I felt the first time I watched Time Bandits. No matter how cheesy it got, the reader never loses interest.Â Mayne also seems to have an artistic style that borrows heavily from manga as well as basic comic books. I was hit or miss with the art. It doesn’t deter the reader, instead it is simplistic enough to not interfere with the plot.
If you have a few extra bucks and want a laugh…then pick this up. It’s the first in a four-part series and a whole lot of fun. I laughed out loud a couple of times, mostly at some of the over the top dialogue.
