We get three short stories in this issue, in each Dollman faces off against some familiar faces from the Full Moon Universe. I will admit i don’t know any of these characters, it doesn’t take anything away from the enjoyment of this book but i should go back and read a few titles of each of Dolmans victims. Next issue sees Dollman face off against the Puppet Masters Dolls, whom i do know, I am looking forward to that one.
Up first is ‘Out of the Box’ in which a group of very stupid teenagers summon a bunch of Demon Toys hoping to be bestowed magic powers…. yeah nothing bad ever happened during a human sacrifice.
When the possessed toys show up the teens don’t stand a chance, until Dollman arrives just in time (meaning too late to save most of the kids) to stop the demon master for good.
The art for this one is fantastic, at points there are panels of a girl bending over of leaning forward for no reason other then to see her chesticles or the camel toe in her underwear, that for me is not needed but i can see why its there, most of the buyers of these books are teenage boys, so they know their audience.
It’s a fun and goring story to start and introduces Dollman quite well to people who might not know who he is.
Up next we get ‘Familicide’ a family of (maybe) rednecks with the head of the family being a guy with a massive head… oh no i get it “head of the family” duhhh.
Taking them your one by one before going after the head honcho (sorry, i had to) with a little head from someone inside the family.
Again the art is pretty flawless for this, overly busty women are once again in abundance but again it doesn’t distract from the fun of all the gruesome deaths.
In so few pages the story does exactly what it needs to do, show how badass Dollman is, job done.
Last but far from least we get the SDCC Exclusive ‘Smoke Break’ which is only 2 pages but has enough blood for all you gore lovers. In this one Gingerweed man (to be confused with Gingerdead man, who is a must read by the way) is in a alley getting high with a female joker cosplayer. To Dollman (and too some I’m sure) smoking weed is as bad as human sacrifice and summoning demons and is deserving of a right royal killing to death.
We also get one more little treat, which is also a trick (cleaver lads, i see what you did there) of a fully illustrated advert page for all sorts of toys you can (most certainly NOT) buy for just a few dollars. It’s so well done I no choice but to add it below.
Dollman Kills the Full Moon Universe is available from August 2018 from all good (and I’m sure some bad) comic stores. Pre order yours now so you don’t miss out what promises to be one hell of a gory ride.
Do you agree with my review, or think I couldn’t be more wrong?
