Comic Book Review: Calamity Cash

Comic Book Review: Calamity Cash

I never collected comic books but I was one of those kids who picked up whatever looked good, randomly, an issue at a time. When I lived in Rhode Island I worked at a comics and collectibles shop and frequented comic book conventions in Boston on the weekends and scrawled my own little comics in my spare time. Needless to say I was excited to have the opportunity to review an indie comic for my blog!

Calamity Cash and the Town With No Name, Part II is the full title of the comic Written by Randall Nichols with art by Justin Cornell.

First off, let me let you in on a secret: There is no part one.
“It’s our little conceit to start en media res, and a nice throwback to our youthful days when we’d often buy comics and be missing a part 3 of 4, or a 1 of 6,” says author, Randall Nichols.

The opening of the comic gives a little bit of background as to where “part 1″ would theoretically have left off. It is best described as a fast-paced, action packed story arc complete with explosions and sprinkled with a bit of humor.

The cover art is actually done in the same style as the rest of the comic, (rare to find sometimes!) with pointalist shading true to classic comic printing styles of old and presented in black and white.

The fight sequences keep you on the edge of your seat, without losing the reader in the action. I don’t want to give too much away, but Calamity Cash is most definitely worth picking up, a great read with a grind house feel. It left me wanting more!

It also helps that the guys who collaborated on the comic are really awesome guys (they even signed my copy for me!).

If you’re interested in checking it out for yourself the comic is available for purchase on Randall Nichols’ blog, as well as on Justin Cornell’s blog.

You can also follow Randall on twitter.

Both gentleman are working on new projects so stay tuned to their blogs and twitter to find out more!

Stay Spooky,
