Review: Gwar: Orgasmageddon #2
Thrown into the past by Mr. Perfect, our favorite “Scumdogs of the Universe” GWAR are fighting their way through time like a horde of insane drunken children, killing and defiling all in their path. Find out what REALLY happened in our human history and get the full story of GWAR’s involvement in World War II, Aztec human sacrifices, and the sinking of the Titanic, plus meet the BRAND-NEW MONSTER with a name so foul we can’t print it here and an appearance so obscene we couldn’t draw it on the cover! This book is a gut punch of social conscience wrapped in a blood-soaked corpse and sprinkled with comedy dynamite.
Dinosaurs, Nazis, dragons, human sacrifice, and a Kraken, oh my. Gwar: Orgasmageddon #2 outdoes the first when it comes to humor and violence of the first as the cock-ship randomly transports them through time. This forces them to shape history as the locals react to their presence. The additional tales at the end continue the humor in disturbing and perverse ways.
The art style continues to blend humor and violence in a spectacular fashion. The issue increases the amount of violence and action when the story calls for it but also dials it back when neccessary at the rare times when it isn’t needed. That creates some contrast and changes things up as things manage to somehow get stranger as the story progresses.
