I’m sure you’re tired of my always positive reviews of this title. I’m sorry, but they’re gonna keep going. Jack Avarice Is The Courier #5 is probably the best issue of the series! More and more of what is great about this series — action, adventure, laughs, and mystery. This issue is a perfect conclusion to this series.
Chris Madden, who handles writing and art duties, knows exactly where he’s going in this title and it shows. It’s another well written issue, with barely a panel in the whole book that lets you catch your breath before moving on to the next cliffhanging panel. Madden has really got the characters down, and in just five short issues, they’ve all ready got a life of their own. Great, great writing here from Chris Madden.
On the art side, it’s more of the same fantastic stuff. Madden’s style throughout the series has remained the same and that’s a good thing. He’s next working on IDW’s Danger Girl series, and he’s going to be a perfect fit for that. It should be loads of fun to look at, I’d recommend picking it up just for his art alone. The only bad thing is, this is the last issue of Jack Avarice Is The Courier, and I’m going to miss him…
OR WILL I? That’s right, check out the last page of this issue for an awesome announcement!! As I’ve said many times before, I can’t recommend this series highly enough. It’s one of my favorites of 2011. No, it’s not going to win an Eisner, but it doesn’t want to. It’s just a good time. And that’s something that we don’t get enough of lately.
