Comic Book Review: Hoax Hunters #10
I love cryptozoology. I love monsters. I love the things that go bump in the night.
And I love the heroes and organisations that have risen to protect the world from such things.
Enter Hoax Hunters #10 out of Image Comics.
I have no experience with Hoax Hunters. Never knew of them until T-Rex Jones (the new artist on the series) started tweeting about it.
So, this is the first issue with art by T-Rex and it feels like a very first issue.
Writers Michael Moreci and Steve Seeley spend time introducing each character so they’re all very accessible for a first time reader. I didn’t feel like I had to track down previous issues to understand a single thing. Instead, having been introduced so well to everyone, I WANT to find previous stories.
Now, the reason I’m even looking at this comic book: The art by T-Rex. His art brings a sense of unease and paranoia to every page and each character. Hoax Hunter #10 is simply an uneasy, pleasure to look at.
All in all this is a great comic. Not only a great comic in its own right, but the perfect jumping on point for new readers.
I’m looking forward to learning more about the characters that make up the Hoax Hunters and the threats they come across.
Hoax Hunters #10 hits stores around the world on September 4, 2013 and will cost you US$3.50.
Trust me when I say, Hoax Hunters #10 is worth every cent.
