We Can Never Go Home Volume 1 Review
“Hilarious, dramatic, and all kinds of wonderful.”
Teenage misfits Duncan and Madison discover they share two secrets in common: they both have super powers, and neither is very good at staying out of trouble.
This is a tale of a couple misfit teenagers with superpowers who come together under unlikely circumstances. This unique pair comes from completely different walks of life, yet find each other in a situation where they must rely on each other.
Madison is one of the hottest chicks at school and is dating a meat head jock. Duncan, on the other hand, is a lonely nerd who no one wants to talk to. These two become unlikely friends after some crazy stuff goes down, but I don’t want to go into too much detail and spoil it anything for you. Oh, and before I forget, there are superpowers involved!
From the very beginning the story is engaging and continues to escalate until the very end. Throw in a couple funny comic book references and you got yourself a pretty good comic. The art is really good in this book as well. There’s a good amount of detail when it comes to the art, and it’s done in a smooth style that really helps the story flow.
The page layouts are ridiculous for this comic. Sometimes there are four or five panels on a page, then the next thing you know, on the following page there is over ten panels. No matter the layout, each page is set up and done extremely well. And if you’re not familiar with what I look for with comic art, it’s the artists’ ability to capture expressions on the characters faces. This book has some of the best expressions I’ve seen in a while.
This is a really good comic and I enjoyed it a lot. It’s definitely one of my favorites to come out of Black Mask Studios. The only downside is that I wish there was more to this series. There has been talks about a second volume, but I haven’t heard anything about when it will come out. No matter…
I’m giving We Can Never Go Home Volume one…
