Review: Norman #3

NORMAN #3_COVERSFor Norman, his one wish for Christmas is the longed for hockey mask that will truly complete his “look” – the perfect serial killer. Sadly, he didn’t know about Santa’s Naughty list. As a murderer-in-training, will Santa be coming down the chimney for him? And, besides, what does “good” really mean, anyway?

This South Park/horror mashup by Stan Silas keeps getting funnier, and more disturbing with every issue. Silas manages to continue Norman’s reign of violence as Grace attempts to leave town, except something catches her eye on the way out. That something draws her to Norman’s house. Grace’s monstrous other half does make an appearance before the story cuts off. The issue concludes with two holiday-themed shorts.

The cartoon-like art style by Silas works well for this series. It bolsters the humorous moments and violent moments alike.The art style for the two holiday-themed shorts is a nice change up. It helps make them easily distinguishable from the main story.
