Review: Going to the Chapel #2
An off the rails robbery. That’s the only way to describe Going to the Chapel #2 a comic that delivers some action and lots of humor.
Written by David Pepose, it’s kind of hard to not enjoy the issue as it pokes fun of the genre and at the same time clearly loves it.
The Elvis Gang has attempted to rob a wedding but technology mucks it up as the cops have gotten word. The place is surrounded but what is the gang going to do now? And what are the hostages going to do while waiting? Use a cell phone!
The comic has the gang dealing with the stupid and the hostages don’t make things any better. Pepose delivers moments and dialogue that’ll catch you off guard and get you to laugh. There’s absurdity here and so much coming out of the blue. It catches you off guard and hits the right notes. Add on top of that, it’s just a solid crime story that’s worthy of Tarantino.
The art by Gavin Guidry with color by Liz Kramer and lettering by Ariana Maher up the humor of it all. The style and art nail the moments and adds to the absurdity. Looks on faces and the body language is at times humorous. It’s those small details that really help and deliver the jokes.
Going to the Chapel #2 continues what is a fun series and put a smile on my face throughout. I find myself chuckling and just enjoying the story like a great action comedy on the screen. Can we please get that adaptation!?
