What is Mayhem Comics and what makes it so important? Mayhem Comics is a monthly webcomic based on the characters created by Matt Kindt. Matt Kindt is an artist who currently resides in San Francisco, but before that he was a writer. For several years now he's been creating comics that focus on crime and legal situations, much like Jim Butcher's " Dresden Files". He first released over 50 issues, each with new storylines each month. You can buy all of the issues of Mayhem Comics in print, or you can also get your comics online.
So why should you get this particular comic? Well, there are many reasons, but perhaps the most important one is that it's written by someone who actually reads and enjoys reading comic books. There's nothing more frustrating than trying to follow a comic that isn't being illustrated in the same way as the source material. When you read comics, you can follow the story at whatever point in time it is possible, because each panel is separate from everything else.
There's also something to be said for keeping up to date with the most popular superheroes today. The majority of the superhero community is constantly changing, so it's great to keep up with what's going on. This particular comic takes that a step further, as it focuses on a team of superheroes who have been together for many years, even during World War II. Every issue has a different focus and the book was recently released in a limited series of six.
In the past, many readers have complained that certain characters were only in the comic for a few issues. That's not the case with this book, which continues to build upon the characters from the last issues. It's been proven that reading this type of comic keeps some readers interested for multiple issues. Many of the stories focus on classic superheroes and stories, while others are much more modern day, dealing with modern-day villains like villains Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.
Comic books have always been notorious for their colorful art, but the coloring techniques have improved significantly since the Bronze Age. Mayhem Comics features some of the best coloring work on the market. The liners are defined and detailed, giving each scene a clear sense of depth. They're not over exaggerating the colors, but rather bringing them realistically. Comics are only capable of drawing realistic details if they have great coloring, and this book possesses that rare combination.
Mayhem is part of the Dark Claw family of comics, and really has nothing in common with any other comic. It's got a fantastic storyline, written by Brian Atkins and drawn by Steve Paves. Atkins has worked on a number of high profile titles, including Kick Ass, Ghost, and Detective.
What really makes Mayhem a unique and great comic is its ability to build up a world where superpowers exist. For instance, in the second issue, there's a mysterious villain who has been killing off superheros. It's clear that this villain has some sort of link to the Kree Empire, and that the world is protecting the last survivors of their home planet from an impending nuclear war. The Kree aren't the only race that has connections to the superheroes. There's an interesting futuristic history between the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, and the connection to the Spiderman comics is strong, as well. All of these connections help to make Mayhem a fun and interesting read.
Brian Atkins has put together a great story, which isn't too far off in continuity with the original Death's Head series he's previously written. Hopefully future issues will bring even more depth to this fantastic title. It's a book you can get addicted to. It's worth the price. You won't be disappointed. Try it - you've got nothing to lose.
