Review: Space Bastards #3

Space Bastards #3

Space Bastards #3 shifts the focus of the series a bit. This issue focuses on Manny and his seeking revenge against Proton. The result is another hilarious issue that’s over the top in action, violence, and pretty offensive things. In other words, it’s par for the course for the series.

The series follows the Intergalactic Postal Service, a space based postal service with a twist. It’s not as simple as delivering a package. Instead, the race to deliver is a contest with the package being able to be stolen from other delivery people. For each handler, the price of delivery goes up. Also, anything goes. Kill your competition if you need to snag the package and complete the delivery. That last bit results in what’s been an over the top comic where the guns go ablaze and blood splatters.

Manny is pissed he had his package stolen by Proton resulting in an attack after the package has been delivered. This gets Manny suspended for 24 hours and even more pissed.

Writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey deliver another crazy issue where Manny is on the warpath and a package has to be delivered. Bombs go off. Bullets fly. Flamethrowers BBQ the competition. And that’s more on the tame end of things.

The issue introduces Zordakk, my new favorite character who has an interesting speaking pattern and says whatever’s on his mind. It’s hard to not laugh at what he says, no matter how offensive and off it is.

Darick Robertson is the maestro of chaos with color by Diego Rodriguez and lettering by Simon Bowland. The visuals are the usual entertaining with almost glee at the destruction. The story sets up the joke but it’s the visual that delivers the punchline. The comic just wouldn’t work as well with a different style to it. Everything is exaggerated visually with large explosions and blood flowing. The characters too deliver that over-the-top aspect with their emotions flowing.

Space Bastards #3 is another fantastic issue. The issue, and series, seems to revel in the death and destruction. It bathes in it. The series is a fun one with a bit of a throwback to Heavy Metal aspect about it. It’s a fun series where you have no idea what’s coming next, keeping readers on their toes for the next kill.

There is perhaps no job in the known universe more dangerous than being a postal carrier.

But with every major player gathered under one roof, could this year’s bash be the perfect opportunity for a hostile takeover? With an ending you have to see to believe, this is one issue of SPACE BASTARDS you cannot miss!

Review: Space Bastards #2

Space Bastards #2

Space Bastards #2 is offensive. Really offensive. It’s also at times really funny and over the top. It’s a comic that’s self-aware and runs with it all. The issue takes us back a bit revealing how Roy Sharpton built the Intergalactic Postal Service. It involves really bad stereotypes of Native Americans/First Nations and some pretty over the top abuse of workers.

Written by Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey, Space Bastards #2 is an origin story in a way. It doesn’t really progress the first issue instead of taking us back to the beginning. Sharpton is a failed businessman and over the top annoying. He’s a person you can’t help but hate for a long list of reasons. Having been sold a failing business we see how Sharpton took the steps to rebuild the company to make it what it is. We’re also delivered hints as to what issues are coming down the road.

The comic is offensive in so many ways. Sharpton randomly yells out so many bad stereotypes and eventually forces his employees to dress in as offensive ways. Luckily things are called out a bit and it’s pointed out how obnoxious the character. Like the first issue, Space Bastards #2 seems to go over the top with everything. The first issue was violence. The second issue is how many offensive stereotypes can be crammed in.

But, the issue also begins to pivot things in a way. Where I thought we were just getting a series about these crazy postal staffers, it looks like the series will be something more and else.

Darick Robertson provides the art with Diego Rodriguez on color and Simon Bowland handle the lettering. Like the first issue, the art is fantastic. The bring such energy and life to the series. It’s over the top and the art is right there like a Looney Tunes cartoon. Scenes just make you laugh in the situations and the character designs. But, it’s a laughter of “oh shit” in how offensive it can be. There’s something there though and I found myself laughing, a lot.

Space Bastards #2 is another solid issue. It’s going to piss people off but it knows it’s being offensive and delivers it all in a way that it’s not meant in a serious manner. We’re supposed to think Sharpton is an asshole and wince at what he does. There’s an over the top nature of it all that it’s hard to take it too seriously and not see the second issue as an extension of the gonzo first.
