Review: Bad Luck Chuck #1

Bad Luck Chuck #1

William H. Macy has been one of those once in a generation actors. For years he has quietly gained recognition one role at a time. Today, he’s known mostly for these days his role as Frank in the hit underdog show Shameless. Macy is a true chameleon, a character actor who inhabits his characters like the way people where clothes.

My favorite roles by him are the ones which he plays those people with a resolute spirit that gets awakened by a chain of events. One of those roles is where he played a gambling jinx, Bernie Lootz, in The Cooler. It’s a movie which spoke to the changing times of Las Vegas and how those people most don’t see can be the most interesting. In the debut issue of Bad Luck Chuck we meet a protagonist like Lootz but one who knows how to monetize her mystical misfortunes.

We meet Charlene “Chuck” Manchester, a woman with so much bad luck, she knows she is cursed, a curse she uses to get insurance money for different clients. This leads her to a client who is trying to find her daughter who she believes joined a cult. Chuck eventually gets the wrong type of attention, goons looking to snatch her client’s daughter and an insurance adjuster. By issue’s end, her otherworldly talents get her out of trouble in many ways but not out of trouble’s view yet.

Overall, the debut issue introduces us to an intriguing protagonist and world that would remind some of Jessica Jones, but has her own niche. The story by Lela Gwenn is moving, interesting, and action packed. The art by the creative team is amazing. Altogether, an enjoyable debut that will draw in readers from the first page.
