If you're a fan of comic books or just simply read them, then you may already be familiar with Edd World Comics. This is the home of many well known and not so well known comic book characters like Batman, Spider-Man, Robin and more. They've been on paper for over thirty years now and I can't say I've been disappointed about the products. The quality and variety of items are much better than you'll find in some of the inferior direct market shops. It's a great place to buy and read any of your favourite comic books.
There are three monthly issues released, each featuring a different superhero. These are: January, February and March. These come from superstar creator Eddy Taran, who does the art and linework for each one. You can tell that he's a true superhero artist because every page of each comic is a master piece. It's great to get a taste of his work and if you want a refresher on what's been happening in comics this year then you should definitely pick up a few issues of Eddworld.
The most recent addition to the cast is Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who plays the role of New York City's police detective, Christian Bale. Yes, the man who starred as the Hulk in the movie Iron Man. He's also voiced by Frank Grillo, who did the same role as Agent Richard Hartman in the new animated series of the same name. Frank is also voiced by Sterling Walker, who played Sam Wilson in the first season of the hit television show, Spectacular: Spider-Man. Both of them look great in the roles and they do a fantastic job of conveying their emotion.
Another member of the squad is Davis Hurwitz, who is now voiced by Michael Chiklis. He was only in the last episode of the second season, but what he lacked in episodes like the first wasn't made up for with his performance as Eddie. I'm a big fan of his characters and his ability to draw extreme emotional reactions from his characters. He does a fantastic job of bringing realism to the role and is extremely convincing as the headstrong but slightly disturbed detective, Eddieiris. His relationship with Detective Frank Petracci, played by Dexter alumni Jeff Daniels, is one of the most endearing parts of the show.
One interesting member of the team is Zanta Claw, who is now played by Giancarlo Esposito. He hasn't had any screen time since the second season of Samurai Jack, but that doesn't mean that fans of the show shouldn't continue to cheer for the actor. In fact, Esposito has been making the best acting performances of his career and he looks better suited for the part of Zanta than his earlier incarnations. This is another example of why it's great to have an actor that can fill the shoes of an already established character.
The supporting cast is also strong with some notable members including Carter Baskin, Terri Hatcher, Kaitlin Anneka, Terri Hatcher, Kim Dickens, and David Strathairn. Carter Baskin plays Zanta, the leader of the Sin City Gang, who is also the father of Carter's daughter, Mallory. Terri Hatcher plays Mallory, the only daughter of Zanta and the mother of Carter and Kim Dickens. Kaitlin Anneka plays Kim, the sexy but dimwitted gang member that everyone loves to hate. Terri Dickens is the only daughter of Zanta and is portrayed as a cold and emotionless girl, while Kim is the hot head of the gang.
While it's true that most of the characters in Eddsworld Comics are gender-swapped (they're either male or female), the one comic I consider to be the best is Zanta Claws. Created by Brian Keelan and drawn by Joe Quinones, Zanta is a fur-lipped fur ball who can be found in the streets and alleyways of Chicago. He's an orphan whose identity is protected by a metal shell that takes the form of his indestructible metal glove. He's a lovable pitbull who enjoys tag wrestling and is well known throughout Chicago as the local bully, who is always seen in a brand new red and black leather outfit, which often features the slogan "I'm a real bad boy!"
In the newest installment of the series, titled September 2021, we've got Diego, who is voiced by Kenneth Barris. Diego's role is to be the new owner of the Zanta Claws, a legendary dog owned by the sinister Captain Zanta. Diego is played by Kenneth Barris, who has a voice that ranges between deep and gruff, but it's his wide range of voices and versatility that make him such a great voice actor.
