Andrew MacLean And Mike Spicer’s ‘Head Lopper’ Is Decapitawesome [Preview]
If you ask me, there just aren’t enough comics these days dedicated to people getting their heads lopped of. Sure, it happens every now and then, but what this world of ours really needs is a comic that is one hundred percent committed to decapitations. Thankfully, Andrew MacLean has stepped up to fill that void with Head Lopper. And it is awesome.
In his first 23-page issue, MacLean pits the eponymous Head Lopper against a sea monster, and then sets up a deadly question: How do you decapitate something that has already been decapitated? Seriously, if you don’t think that is the best premise a comic has had all year, you are wrong. Check out a preview below!Keep in mind that these aren’t sequential pages, they’re just highlights from the first issue:
Between MacLean’s smooth style, ridiculous action and Spicer’s colors, Head Lopper reminds me a lot of Samurai Jack, and that’s a good thing. Plus, the first issue boasts five amazing pin-ups from the likes of James Harren and Brian Churilla. It’s a great, fun start for a new comic, and if you’re going to be at HeroesCon in Charlotte this weekend, you can pick it up directly from MacLean!
If you’re not fortunate enough to go to the East Coast’s best comic book show, don’t fret: You can still grab it from MacLean online here.
