Review: Gwar Orgasmageddon #3
Join the greatest heavy metal band to ever terrorize an audience, the all-mighty GWAR, as they rampage through the past to catch Mr. Perfect and shut him down for good. One part revenge, two parts bloodlust, all parts GWAR craziness! See GWAR’s influence on modern technological inventions, watch GWAR kill more historical dead guys, and drop in on a very special 1990s talk show episode taping. That’s right, this is the issue you demanded: GWAR of yesterday meets GWAR of today and things are gonna get…emotional.
In Gwar Orgasmageddon #3, the battle against the Kraken has a violent end, as the band tries to fix the cock-ship. When it displaces them to 16th Italy, they run into an old friend, an old enemy, and Leonardo DaVinci. It seems Sawborg has been busy since his run in with Mr. Perfect. The issue is the usual craziness that we’ve come to expect so far. This isn’t for the faint at heart. With only one issue left, I’m curious to see how this murderous tale of revenge and humor ends.
The art manages to mix in sizable quantities of gore, violence, and humor. It even gives a small cameo of the Oderus Urungus, as they appeared on the infamous Jerry Springer show. There’s also some interesting views of Renaissance era Italy. Even the violent scenes are getting more gore, as the series progresses.
This is a series that doesn’t take itself too seriously and likes to amp things up as high as it can go not just over the top but setting a new bar of insane fun.
