I love comic books. I think they’re an incredibly inventive medium through creators can tell some of the most unique and compelling stories – from the artistry, to the page layout, to the placement of the text bubbles. I love seeing how all these different elements come together to tell a cohesive story, even though I don’t read as many as I should. I grew up reading the funny section of the Sunday newspaper, and for quite a few years I followed the online comic Ctrl+Alt+Del as if it were my religion.
But I was never the comic book kid. I read wiki entries for popular DC and Marvel storylines, but I didn’t have a collection of books. Even now, the only series I stay current with is Avatar: The Last Airbender because I can’t get enough of those characters and world. So, when Tony Breed sent me a review copy of Muddlers Beat Volume 1 (a compilation of his online comic, Muddlers Beat) I was super excited to dig into it to see what he had concocted – and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed.
