Review: 30 Miles of Crazy #2
There’s nothing like walking through a major metropolis at night. You’ll never see the city the same way. I remember growing up in New York City with my cousins. We used to take the train at all times of the night. This was when you used to see things that would rattle most folks. But not us. It wasn’t because we were tough or knew exactly what was going on. We were just used to it. It was part of being a city dweller.
What made our trips so interesting were the people we met. Most of them were regular dayworkers just trying to get home. Others were homeless just trying to stay warm and fed. Needless to say, when I eventually traveled the world, I saw that most cities were like ours, just with different flavors. In the second issue of Karl Christian Krumpholz’s sensational series, 30 Miles Of Crazy, readers gets another peak into what looks like a wild night.
In “An Awkward Late-Night Conversation” a man takes a taxi only to find out he is about to hear one of the most gripping stories of his life. In “Just One Man’s Opinion,” one lush, as most of them do, pushes his opinion about Alice Cooper to everyone he sees. In “A Cajun Baptism,” a friend of the author tells an embarrassing story about the first time they met. In “Tequila Sunrise,” one bargoer becomes infuriated when he wrongly assumes how a strong a certain drink is. In “The Second Date,” we find how the author’s second date with his wife to have told him everything he needed to know about her. In “The Scottish Goodbye,” one bargoer explains what the term means leading to hilarious epiphany. By issue’s end, the reader gets a more personal comic from the writer. It’s one which makes you understand the man behind the pen.
Overall, the second issue gives you not only more about the city but the man behind the words. The story by Krumpholz is both fun and hilarious. The art by Krumpholz is beautiful and vivid. Altogether, it’s an excellent installment which should pull more readers into this world.
