We saved the biggest for last: a long-abandoned gene-splicing project created by Dr. Zin has been reactivated, and even the F.E.A.R. agents who brought it back to life can no longer stop it! Who can? How about Buzz Conroy and Frankenstein Jr.!

It’s time these two soldiers stopped giving a pup about rules and found a way to get back Stateside, but Air Force General Harrier has other ideas.

From man to man’s best friend! Mutt has undergone a shocking transformation and unstabilium is to blame! Can he and Dick find a cure back home in the United States?

Review: Dastardly & Muttley #1

It’s a red-letter day for the good folk of Unliklistan as they start to power up their first atomic reactor. But after pushing the wrong button, the ultra-rare radioactive element, unstabilium, has been released into the atmosphere! Now it’s up to pilot Lt. Col. Richard “Dick” Atcherly and his navigator Captain Dudley “Mutt” Muller to save the day. Will they safely complete their mission? Or are things about to get a little…wacky?

Every so often you come across a comic you have to ask what the writers were on when coming up with it, Dastardly & Muttley #1 is definitely one of them as the classic Hanna Barbera cartoon characters are updated in a limited series set in the modern day. The Red Baron-esque background is updated and Dastardly is now a pilot investigating a nuclear explosion with his dog (don’t ask, it’s explained) and after a freak accident, well, it’s best to read the comic, but the cover gives the twist away.

It’s out there. Really out there. I feel I need to drop shrooms or smoke a bowl type of out there.

That’s not a bad thing at all as the comic, written by Garth Ennis, doesn’t take itself seriously at all and also doesn’t try to shoehorn in characters to a point it doesn’t work. There’s lots of winks and nods in the issue that had me smiling and it feels like a combination of Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and Top Gun with a little The Mask thrown in. That’s an odd combination but it works here.

The art by Mauricet is pretty solid and has a similar aesthetic to a lot of DC Comics’ other updated classic cartoon characters. While it doesn’t leap off the page and blow me away, Mauricet absolutely blends the grounded with the zany for a look that at times feels like a cartoon come to life. It’s a wacky story and the art brings that out when it needs to.

Where this is all going, I have absolutely no clue. But, the first issue is entertaining enough and has me looking forward to the next issue to see what’ll happen and what else Ennis can deliver when it comes to winks and nods.
