Suicide Risk 6 (October 2013)

SuicideRisk 06 rev

Apparently all Carey needed to do with Suicide Risk to sustain the comic was send it to Mexico. This issue is another strong one, maybe even the best so far in the normal series. I even remember the lead’s name is Leo; I usually forget somewhere during the issue.

There are more bad guys who show up, but Carey doesn’t go overboard introducing them. There’s not a lot of nonsense with Leo as a cop, just as the protagonist in over his head. Carey’s not trying too hard to fit in the exposition. And the annoying family is only in it for a few pages.

The issue hints at a whole lot. The super powered people are maybe shadows of other people–their real selves–something along those lines. Hopefully it’s not The Matrix. There’s a demon from Hell, however, so who knows… anything’s possible.

I hope Carey can maintain.

  1. Not sure where Carey is going here, but he still seems to make me wanting for more. The continuous adding of plot elements might sink most series without some sort of resolution this far in, but the new elements all seem necessary and fit. Like you, I’m hopeful for the book, but with any luck, part of the “grand plan” will become more available to the readers soon.
