Project Fanboy Reviews Darkness/Pitt #3

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Paul Jenkins
Pencils: Dale Keown
Inks: Dale Keown
Colors: Felix Serrano

This book is a gory, slithery, gooey, gross out....and its a heck of a lot of fun. The Darkness/Pitt #3 finds Jackie Estacado, Pitt, and the young and powerful Timmy on the run with a giant morphing mass of bodies called The Infected chasing them down. The book, written by Paul Jenkins, has just the right blend of action, comedy, and horrorfied visuals to make it a real good read. His pacing is near perfect and the comic moves just as quick as the infected. He creates a real interesting ambivalent relationship between the two title characters that is held together by a young and bright and super powerful nine year old. Its the kind of ridiculousness that makes for great comics. His dialogue is good (although the voice-over bits are a bit cliched) and even though its the third issue of the series you wouldn't really know it as it's fairly engrossing all on its own.
