STANLEY COMICS "SUPERHUMAN' What a fun and exciting ride this one was! I finished with Stanley Comics "Superhuman" and all I can say is what are you doing reading this? Go check it out!
From page one he grabs your attention and doesn't let go until you are finished. This is a highly stylized and graphic story about...you guessed it from the title, super-humans! Without giving anything away (do you know how hard that is when your doing a review?) the story focuses around an adolescent and his "version" of growing out of teenage-hood. As I read along and got to know this character, I realized he reminded me of a teenage Deadpool, with quick witty quips (and a disregard for human life ;) ) he is a quirky young adult that I find fascinating. And even though I can compare him to Deadpool, you will see that SC (Stanley Comics) creates a superhuman all his own in very different and unique ways.

As a little side-note I just wanted to add that the way he introduces his characters is pretty clever! He gives you a one page stat listing that is comical yet informative. You end up knowing a volumes worth about the character before even seeing them in the story, very cool!

The story in a whole is well rounded and interesting. Their are intricate scenes that automatically grab you attention, and keeps you guessing where the artist is going to go with it. The fact that I couldn't assume where SC was headed with the comic gave him my full respect! The pacing is PERFECT giving that professional feel we all as comic book lovers want to find in a graphic novel.

From colors to shading, right down to the city landscapes; everything SC does is with a perfectionists skill that I usually only see out of the Marvel/DC universes. To think that I get to read for free is mind blowingly awesome! Honestly, the only thing I could really see off is some of the wording looks misspelled to me. But that is only nit picking and could be justified with it being apart of a British accent.

It's hard hitting and controversial, and definitely worth taking some of your time to read. If you read anything today, I highly suggest Stanley Comics "Superhuman". It will be one of those tales they will levitate and elevate your imagination!

Oh, man, thanks! That's actually a very positive review! The comparison to Marvel and DC means a lot to me, because it's kind of what I'm aspiring to! There is a long way there, but it's one I'm willing to take :D
And yeah, the spelling's been a problem. Sometimes I forget to check the spelling of a sentence and stuff like that, but I'm hoping to fix that :D
Thanks again :D
