Brother Lono 7 (February 2014)

For the first time, I’m very unimpressed with Brother Lono. Azzarello is dragging things out–Lono’s getting tortured, the priest is trying to patch things up with the drug lords (or something, Azzarello is iffy on his actual motives), and the sister is going to get the sheriff. These subplots don’t come together. Azzarello races through each of them, with Lono’s being the worst because it’s a torture scene. Not particularly amusing. Or even engaging.

Even if Risso can draw some gross things.

It’s not exactly a bridging issue; it’s more like being stuck in the middle of a bridge you could see across before you started. It’s a dragging out issue and one with all big events. All that flavor Azzarello and Risso previously brought to Lono is gone.

The issue isn’t bad by any means, it’s just lacking and pointless. One could easily skip it, which is unfortunate.

  1. Again, same response here. incredibly lifeless issue which contradicts the energy of the ones before it. Hmmm, I wonder if there’s anything intrinsically wrong with odd numbered mini series, since few want to do them. Would of helped here.
