Review: Deathbed #2

Cover._SX360_QL80_TTD_

Dearest Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Margaret Mars, philanthropist, globetrotter and onetime lover of Antonio Luna. Her noble pursuit of humanitarian causes dates back to the first word she ever spoke (“Peace”), which is juxtaposed with the seven words she uttered right before being assassinated (“Who let these ninjas into my house?!”). Indeed, these seven words paint an inexplicably bizarre, yet accurate, picture of her final moments on earth. Who let these ninjas into her house, and why were they there to begin with? What business did a pack of inhuman zombie-mummy-ninjas have with Ms. Mars, and why did they murder her? Fascinating questions, none of which we have the answers to. But Ms. Mars would not want us to grieve! Ms. Mars’ will states her desire that we celebrate her life and not mourn her death (as horrific and gruesome as it may have been)! So come! Be merry and help us send off the great Maggie Mars in a way that honors her remarkable life!

 

Just be sure not to invite Antonio Luna.

The adventurous and odd life of Antonio Luna continues to be revealed in Deathbed #2. Someone is killing off everyone Antonio Luna has come into contact with and that includes one of his greatest loves, Ms. Mars. That’s the set up of this issue as Luna heads to the wake leading to hilarious and sad results.

Writer Joshua Williamson continues to hold nothing back in this issue that’s both funny and offensive. And through the cringeworthy humor, we also get a glimpse of Luna the man and how egocentric he truly is. It’s a fascinating character and way to allow us to dive further into his world and experiences. We might not like Luna but we understand him.

The art by Riley Rossmo with colors by Ivan Plascencia continues to drop subtle hints and reveal the life of Antonia Luna. The scenes and situations vary from the streets of Paris to the desert with mutants and a funeral. Every one important in telling Luna’s life and adding to his story that’s being told. The art in this case may be more important than the dialogue as it not only tells so much of Luna’s history but also delivers much of the humor that the dialogue sets up. The lettering by Deron Bennett is important too as it sets each scene and emotional punch and in some cases helps land the joke.

The issue continues the inappropriateness that is the exploration of Luna’s life and when you think it can’t get anymore cringeworthy funny, you’re proven wrong. A fantastic series that delivers laughs with some heart underneath.
