Scarlett Couture #1 is one of the most unique comics that I’ve read in years. I hate when people compare things to other things. That’s nothing but a cheap way of getting out of explaining the pros or cons of whatever you’re describing. So, I’m not going to compare this comic to anything else, I’m just going to tell you why you should immediately go out and buy it!
Creator and writer Des Taylor brings to life a truly different comic book. This is a great tale of espionage and high fashion, with action, comedy, adventure, mystery, and a great big dash of fun thrown in for good measure. There is a LOT to enjoy about this story. In this first issue we’re introduced to our heroine Scarlett, who’s a fashion model, head of security for her mother’s fashion agency, and a secret agent! There are some great standards with some unexpectedly awesome modern twists, which makes this book very refreshing.
As an artist, Des Taylor is unbelievably talented. Why hasn’t this man done more comics before? Well, I’m sure he’ll have his pick of projects after this series comes out. This guy is incredible! His character designs are great, his page layouts are spot-on, and his BACKGROUNDS will blow you away! They honestly look like they were pulled straight out of an animated feature film. You are going to have to see this art to believe it, but take my word for it, it’s unbelievably breathtaking.
BUY! THIS! BOOK! OK, I know I’ve been going on about it, but the superb quality of this issue totally took me by surprise. The story is great, the art is beyond your wildest expectations, there is really nothing that you won’t enjoy about this title. Trust me, you’re really going to love this comic!
