While The Answer! #3 doesn’t really answer any questions (It actually brings up more questions), it’s a damn fine entertaining comic nonetheless.
Dennis Hopeless and Mike Norton have really done what they’ve set out to do: entertain me. Sure, along the way they’ll also entertain thousands of other people, but that’s just gravy. In this third chapter of the I wish it wasn’t a mini-series, all hell breaks loose as we go inside the pretty scary place where all the smart people work. But, who better to save her then The Answer? Of course, he’s got to save himself first, which may be easier said than done. This comic book is just plain FUN. Remember what that was like? When “fun” wasn’t a dirty word in the comics industry. Well, it shouldn’t be and that’s what this book is. From cover to cover, you’re going to do nothing but smile and be entertained at just how awesome The Answer is!
I hope that some day I get the chance to meet artist Mike Norton face-to-face, so I can tell him how talented that I think he is. And, how awesome The Answer! is. It’s fantastically laid out on every page. There’s as much humor in the art as their is the dialogue, yet there’s a great sense of suspense where there needs to be. This is the kind of first rate artistry that can’t be faked and that people look forward to month in and month out.
You owe it to yourself to pick up this issue, and this series. If you’re waiting for the tradeâ€“DON’T!! Go out and buy yourself these comics and enjoy them!!
