Review: Norman #4

norman_4_cover_bShenanigans and sibling rivalry abound in this second glimpse into Norman’s home life, as more is revealed as to how this gorgeous, golden, charming little boy became such a horrifying mini-monster in the making – albeit one who still has a lot to learn about the art of a skillful kill!

In Norman #4, Norman’s lost sister returns bringing reinforcements in the process. There’s a surprising twist that involves more in her physical appearance then who she brings along. It all comes together and manages to help build in anticipation and adds to the edge of the comics as things get plain weird.

Stan Silas, who is also the writer, continues with the cartoon-inspired art style like in previous issues. This issue also adds a vast amount of animals in the process. It’s all great as the comic shows Norman’s attempt at having a family Christmas.

The comic continues to be twisted and humorous with a great blend of writing and art.

Review: Norman #3

NORMAN #3_COVERSFor Norman, his one wish for Christmas is the longed for hockey mask that will truly complete his “look” – the perfect serial killer. Sadly, he didn’t know about Santa’s Naughty list. As a murderer-in-training, will Santa be coming down the chimney for him? And, besides, what does “good” really mean, anyway?

This South Park/horror mashup by Stan Silas keeps getting funnier, and more disturbing with every issue. Silas manages to continue Norman’s reign of violence as Grace attempts to leave town, except something catches her eye on the way out. That something draws her to Norman’s house. Grace’s monstrous other half does make an appearance before the story cuts off. The issue concludes with two holiday-themed shorts.

The cartoon-like art style by Silas works well for this series. It bolsters the humorous moments and violent moments alike.The art style for the two holiday-themed shorts is a nice change up. It helps make them easily distinguishable from the main story.

Norman returns! In this charming tale of brutal murder and gore, the eight- year-old serial killer sharpens his knives once again in an effort to truly live up to his heroes. Is it too much to ask that everyone be just a tiny bit more supportive of his dreams?

Review: Norman #2

Norman_#2_Cover_AIt’s not so easy being Grace – cast out among misfits, toppled from her position as the ultimate Queen Bee, and now forced to consider that maybe she’s got more in common with Norman than she thought.

Maybe, just maybe, she’s a horrifying monster who has no place in civilized society?

While not as gruesome as the first issue, Norman #2 as a mini pseudo South Park Slasher is still funny. The issue manages to reveal some of Grace’s odd “monstrous,” backstory along with the hilariously disgusting results of Bader’s death.  The results of all of that together may seem a little familiar to fans of The Simpsons Halloween Special.

Despite the simple art, Stan Silas handles the art and writing, it manages to bolster the humor of the story. I will admit the Grace flashback was unexpected and leaves me curious to know a few things. Hopefully her “monstrous,” form makes an appearance in coming issues.
