Review: Norman #2
It’s not so easy being Grace – cast out among misfits, toppled from her position as the ultimate Queen Bee, and now forced to consider that maybe she’s got more in common with Norman than she thought.
Maybe, just maybe, she’s a horrifying monster who has no place in civilized society?
While not as gruesome as the first issue, Norman #2 as a mini pseudo South Park Slasher is still funny. The issue manages to reveal some of Grace’s odd “monstrous,” backstory along with the hilariously disgusting results of Bader’s death. The results of all of that together may seem a little familiar to fans of The Simpsons Halloween Special.
Despite the simple art, Stan Silas handles the art and writing, it manages to bolster the humor of the story. I will admit the Grace flashback was unexpected and leaves me curious to know a few things. Hopefully her “monstrous,” form makes an appearance in coming issues.
