Another issue of Redlands hit, and I hate to say it but I might have to drop it. A new character was introduced who is also a gator man (like a were-aligator or something) and while he establishes his bona fides as an unlicensed bounty hunter (and gator man) pretty quickly, this issue sure does have a lot of women with their tits out for no real reason. I’m not a prude by any means, but the introduction to the bounty hunter gator man is him surprising two criminals who have pulled over so they can bone, and several pages of an already light-on-content issue are spent watching the gator man and one of the witches banging it out against a jeep. For a comic that started out with some interesting thoughts on race and gender it sure does get real porny real fast.
Oh, and the guy who was causing trouble in the previous issue seems to have gotten his head chewed off by the gator man (or maybe it was just a lacky? I wasn’t clear on that point, and frankly I’m not particularly interested in going back to find out. EDIT: I went back and found out. It was the same dude. So that was a wet fart of a storyline, wasn’t it?). Kind of a disappointing third issue, to be honest. I’ll give it another one or two before I throw my hands up completely but man, between this issue and the end of the previous one (aka Witchy Lesbian Orgy Time, which again like… did not land well with me at the time, and only looks worse in light of this issues further sexual escapades). Maybe I’ll just stick with Sabrina for my spooky witch comic needs (I need the second trade to drop so I can pick it up because I don’t wanna have to buy all those back issues. This is why I hate getting into a series late - you’re left with the choice between “buy all these back issues between the last trade and present day” or “wait for the next trade and fall further behind”).
Oh, and Adventure Time is still, well, Adventure Time. Do you like Adventure Time the animated series? Adventure Time the comic is more of that. I like it quite a bit, and while Chris Hastings is not quite as good as Ryan North was, he’s still pretty good.
