Hoax Hunters #8 continues its fun, entertaining, and interesting story that has both features of a stand alone AND continuity, something rarely seen in today’s comic market.

Writers Michael Moreci & Steve Seeley wrap up a Hoax Hunters mystery this issue and set the stage for upcoming story lines. My guy reaction is that this story should’ve been wrapped up maybe a little bit sooner. I read Hoax Hunters on a monthly basis and I have to say, I was almost lost by the time this story was finished. I think if there were maybe a few LESS supporting characters, and maybe an issue less of this particular story arc, it would’ve been a lot more enjoyable. Understand, by no means am I saying that it’s a bad comic, far from it, I just think that this shouldn’t have maybe dragged on as long as it did.

Axel Medellin will never be my favorite artist. He’s still got a long way to go before I’d consider his work something that I’d seek out. However, to give credit where credit is due, he is a competent artist, I’m just not sure his art is something that’s right for Hoax Hunters. Hoax Hunters is a book of monsters, aliens, urban myths, and all sorts of creatures. Medellin draws an OK human being…and that’s about it. Maybe one day down the road, when he’s got a lot more experience under his belt, he can come back to Hoax Hunters and blow me away, but for right now, I’m just not a fan.

Now, it seems like I dumped all over this book, but that was not the intent, there IS a lot of room for improvement on this title, and this issue in particular. But overall the series has been refreshing, fun and a nice change of pace from everything else that’s on the stands right now. Hey, everyone has a bump in the road and every issue of a comic can’t be perfect. This one wasn’t. But, I’m sure there’ll be plenty of issues where Moreci, Seeley, and company make up for it.
