Ichabod is a boy in the prison of his mind and apparently an insane asylum as well. We are led to believe that his murdering someone (maybe even a few people) got him jailed. But he’s got bigger monsters to kill and that’s why we’re lead to believe he’s a hero, or at least a good guy. Alright. Sounds good to me. I’m a fan of the twisted and
sometimes often depraved antagonist. While I am slowly coming around to at least understanding the stand-up hero types like Superman, it’s the fully warped ones that make stories more interesting to me – this at least partially comes from my not believing that anyone is so perfect as Superman but that’s a tangent for another article. Right now, I’m talking about the to-some degree more realistic, the more complex Ichabod Jones: Monster Hunter.
Published by Viper Comics, it’s the art of IJ: MH that immediately caught my attention. It’s beautiful. Renzo Podesta is serious talent. The first issue is full of incredible action that makes single panels fill with motion and entire pages feel like Icabod’s madness.
