“This is so stupid…This is so f*cking stupid…I haven’t run since the eighth grade.” 

The first page of The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos Issue 3 is a mood. I also oddly feel attacked?

 As my first introduction to the series, I’m already here for it. There is a life in this book, this series, that has me turning the pages. The story? Yes. The art? Absofrickinlutely. The colors? What is like three steps beyond absofrickinlutely? It’s whatever that is. There’s friggen vampires! 

Ahem. More of a professional review. The world created in The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos melds the mundane life of the supernatural, with the wild and unpredictable life of teenagers. Reeling from the death of one of their own, the characters are trying to find their way through their new normal while also trying to fight against the very “people” who took their friend from them.

Vampires, friggen vampires, who worship at the right hand of Bram Stoker. Vampires who take on religious tenements. Vampires wrapped in white from head to toe that move like specters to capture, or kill, their quarry.  This was not what I was expecting. I have no idea what I was expecting but it wasn’t this. The world within Christopher Chaos has a level of sweet angst that makes you root for the main characters.

The vampire society is different enough to not make you call Buffy just quite yet. It’s familiar but unique. I theorize that book three is where comics really take off, and if issues one and two are anything like three? I’m going to buy the trade of this in a heartbeat.

Do I know Sabrina? Sabrina…Sabrina….Oh, you mean her? Yeahh. She’s wild. Homegirl throws solo dance parties in her bedroom. She writes like nobody’s reading…because they aren’t (yet). She is an award-winning baker and has seen every episode of every season of ALL the Star Treks, and Stargates except Stargate Universe because it wasn’t right. Perpetual teenager. 4’11 of sass and sarcasm. She’s obsessed with cats. Single if you can believe it. All around nerd, and just too weird for her own good. AND SHE’S PROUD OF IT?
