Image seems to be knocking it out of the park as of late, with several great comics like I Hate Fairyland, Saga, Paper Girls, and now The Fix can enter those ranks. After a short break, we are back into The Fix with issue six telling us a story about a meth head and the detectives that pay him to rob celebrities. I can’t make this stuff up, but apparently, Nick Spencer can and this is gold. Spencer takes us on a glorious adventure filled with comedy, death, and general outlandish stories, enjoyable all the way through.
For those of you that haven’t read The Fix yet, it is an adult comic that follows two crooked cops in LA, with some of the best storytelling I have seen this year. Now when I say adult, I mean it, we get to see cursing, jack off jokes, dildos, sex scenes, and all kinds of other great moments. This issue is no different, from the meth head that has webcasted bum fights, robbers jerking off while riding the banister to the bottom, and who could forget the mayor that openly admits to jerking off in press conferences, this will have you laughing until the end. Spencer has a knack for telling these stories that keeps you interested all the way through in a believable enough way that is telling of our society in America.
Liber, Hill, and Ironbark also knock it out of the park with the art here, giving it a gritty feel that makes all the shenanigans believable. I can’t help but think that this team is laughing the whole time while putting this comic together and that comes through in the pages. In all this is a great read for those that enjoy the type of humor we talked about above. If that is you, it looks like it’s time to pick this one up.
