Motor Crush 4 (March 2017)

Motor Crush #4

You know what happens to Motor Crush when Babs Tarr doesn’t get a lot to draw? It plods. This issue plods almost the entire way though, with Domino confronting her dad about her past and her dad storming off. She then pushes away the ex-girlfriend before robbing a rival gang of their speed drug. There’s a chase scene, but it’s complicated by Domino ripping off the drugs. The weak characterizations and scenes–and lack of Tarr dynamism–make this one a snoozer.

Motor Crush 3 (February 2017)

Motor Crush #3

Motor Crush is starting to lose me a little. Fletcher and Stewart aren’t doing a lot with the characters, instead focusing on the melodrama. It’s early, so if they do rebound with some character development and not just cliffhanger mysteries, the book can easily recover. Tarr’s art is strong, with some ambitious composition layouts too.

Motor Crush 2 (January 2017)

Motor Crush #2

This issue’s not as good as the first. It’s still good, with some great art from Tarr, but Fletcher and Cameron try a little too hard with all the mystery. There’s protagonist Domino’s hidden parentage, there’s her story with her ex-girlfriend (who returns this issue). The chase scenes in particular make up for any bumps, but it’s still unwieldy.

Motor Crush 1 (October 2016)

Motor Crush #1

Well. Motor Crush is absolutely awesome. It’s got a phenomenal pace, lots of action–Babs Tarr’s art is fantastic–and just the right amount of drama. Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher actually do a whole three act story this issue, all while doing a first issue. It’s very cool, with a great cliffhanger. And the lead just gets more appealing the more time you spend with her.
