‘Butterguy’ #1, £1 from Freakypud’s comix, 12 Jaycroft court, Stephenson street, North Shields, Tyne and Wear, NE30 1ET, uk
Shane D. Rivett brings us a tale of self centred superheroes and an art style that’s Dek Baker and Mitzy having a picnic. ‘Butterguy’ is our hero, a mild mannered young man, who was occasionally bullied and frequently the butt of jokes. That was until the local superheroes (or champions) saved his life. Through mysterious technology and invention he battles to be the cities number one hero.
It’s good to see a comic with enthusiasim as one of it’s most evident features. Despite a few spelling errors, the dialogue comes across quite clear, and the story is straight forward enough. There’s definitely some talent here.
