With Madman and two of the Atomics off on an intergalactic music tour with Red Rocket 7, the safety of Snap City falls to an extremely bored It Girl who spends most of her time playing the video game “Dark Streets,” complaining about the lack of real criminals on the streets, and even allowing Dr. Flem to test out his latest experiment on her involving Electrical Transference.
The story also includes a plot thread showcasing a former villain (the Skunk) trying to go straight but having trouble convincing both It Girl and his old crew that he’s done with a life of crime following his recent parole.
I’ve never be an avid reader of writer Mike Allred’s Madman universe, but the first issue of this new series intrigued me and I decided to give it a shot. I’m glad I did.
The story isn’t as weird as some of the Madman arcs get. In fact, at least for the first issue it’s pretty straightforward, although what the exactly the fallout from Flem’s experiment is may well determine where the comic goes from here. Worth a look.
