Survival Street #3 Review: A Blazing Adventure With Your Special Friend MILO

Dark Horse Comics Survival Street #3 is a Sesame Street parody set in a not-so-far-off dystopia that echoes reality a little more closely than I’d like to admit. In this world, corporations have seized power over everything, even the government. Corporations have achieved unbridled power allowing them to do some seriously messed up shit. A Cast of Once Famous and beloved now infamous and Outlawed Muppet-like characters are set on trying to do some good in the world.

Survival Street #3 Review

Issue three was my first taste of Survival Street and I’ll admit I’m curious to go back and hit this story from the start. I think the premise is ridiculous but respectably executed. The Juxtaposition of Puppets and the world going to shit feels uncomfortable at times. I want to laugh at times, but it’s so dark it feels wrong. (This being intentional no doubt.) A social commentary about the direction the world is heading.

Abylay Kussainov’s artwork depicts the chaos well and I loved the puppets and deciphering the characters that inspired them!  Although it’s good, it’s admittedly not my favorite work by the artist. James Asmus and Jim Festante cleverly twisted together an insane narrative that includes how children, obtained through abortion clinic sting operations by private prisons are sold off to other companies and exploited. Said children are punished in place of corporations when a fall guy is needed or even sent to fight wildfires in California.

Issue three starts with the Puppets asking the only puppet to maintain wealth and popularity Elm… er I mean Milo for help so they can rescue these children. Milo pours himself a drink and refuses to help for fear of destroying his image.  The Puppets go on a rescue mission without the assistance of Milo. The Puppets manage to find the kids. But are having difficulty escaping the fire. On edge, they begin to fight amongst themselves, and someone ends up getting hurt. Milo has

This issue was a hectic read with well-thought-up disturbing concepts. I’m Definitely a fan of the punk rock nature of the comic even if the brutalist dystopia left me with unease at how easily some of these events could play out given the current state of the world. I’ll keep my eyes open for what comes next and have been inspired to check out the previous issues. If you like to fight the powers that be and like your entertainment gritty decorated with humor, then these books will be right up your alley.
