Comic review: FTN reviews Limbo #1

Writer: Dan Watters
Art: Caspar Wijngaard
Publisher: Image Comics

Dedande City. Where Louisiana meets Mexico and voodoo permeates through the town and its people.

And now the home to Clay, an amnesiac private investigator. Having woken up in Dedande with no memory of how he got there, he’s taken in and set up as a PI by voodoo practitioner and Kool & The Gang fan Sandy. But it’s only when Clay takes on a new case involving a major Dedande crime boss that things really start to get weird.

So begins Dan Watters’s tale of crime, intrigue, black magic and Thor-knows what else. The debut issue is a little light on detail, but still has more than enough intrigue to draw the reader in and keep them interested. And of course Caspar Wijngaard’s artwork is as spot-on as ever, capturing the mixture of Cajun and Latin America perfectly.

So far, so good. Keep it up, guys.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
