Review: A Knight in Kansas City #1
There is something about the 1970s. To me, it feels like a time and space where people were more trusting. It was a time when people left doors unlocked depending on where you lived. People also actually knew their neighbors. Life was a bit simpler than it is today and so were people along with it.
The movies that came out during this time was Hollywood at its most trippiest and most experiment heavy. This was the era which both birthed Close Encounters Of the Third Kind and Kiss The Movie, both classics in their own right and earmarks of what the era was. Some of the bet movies featured low budgets and revolved around storylines that you would only find in pulp novels. Some of my favorites dealt with a hero or heroine putting it all on the line in the name of love, which is a story I found in the debut issue of A Knight In Kansas City.
We are taken to Kansas City in 2015 where we meet Kay, a young lady who is lovelorn over a woman she has fallen hard for, Sara. Sara soon finds out that Kay is caught in a cult, one which requires a sacrifice and it may be her. This prompts Sara to infiltrate the cult’s temple and find out just how deep Kay is involved with these people and the cult.
Overall, it’s an excellent debut issue which drops the reader in a world which will both intrigue and bewilder them. The story by Daniel Gargallo and Sam Kramer is clever, exciting, and stacked with mystery. The art by Luanna Vecchio and Dashiell Saathoff is elegant and vivid. Altogether, it’s an excellent comic that will give fans of mysteries a story they can dive in to.
