Tights #2 Review: As Real As Being A Superhero Can Get

Tights #2 Review: As Real As Being A Superhero Can Get

Tights #2 Review: As Real As Being A Superhero Can Get

Tights so far is a hilarious ride with Tights #2 taking us further through a more realistic take on heroes and villains. The pandemic has wiped the economies ass dry, and people are desperate to turn to more crime while others take up vigilant mantles. This is not a superhero comic so if you are looking for over-the-top powers and otherworldly creatures this is not it.  Instead, it offers a hilarious look into the life of the Honorable Judge Oliver Andrews.  Known for nailing vigilantes and crime bosses alike serving up justice.

Tights #2 Review: As Real As Being A Superhero Can Get

Chris Waigand’s main character is a regular guy who couldn’t get it up while his wife was ovulating, got too drunk with his buddies, and ended up in the doghouse with his lady, a regular middle-aged guy kind of stuff.  These human moments add to the believability and silliness all at once.  The first issue had me laughing my ass off.

Glad I wasn’t drinking coffee, or I would have spit it all over the place. Oliver quickly finds himself b up in quite a sticky web when he’s attacked by Sun a crime lord he put away.  Just before he is executed by some goons, The Shadowpack (a crew of vigilantes) shows up and saves him just to blackmail him for private court records. Issue two sees Oliver trying to hatch a plan with an old friend that may spell trouble for his relationship in the future. The foxy FBI agent Veronica. 

This series is a promising helluva good time that offers gunplay, clever writing, and vital artwork that enhances the story even further. Edison Neo has a lively art style that flows with movement even his depiction of simple gestures helps activate the panels. Naturally, his action scenes shine. His characters have a great sense of expression and personality and give you a sense of who each character is. 

I really enjoy the visual fluidity and character gestures that guide your eye through the panels. Maja Opacic does a great job with coloring that accents the artwork nicely. In particular, I enjoy the subtle lighting effects she plays with like sunshine streaking across Oliver’s desk. Excellent use of highlighting and shadow. It all comes together into a nicely wrapped issue of laughs and action with the lettering of Reed Hinckley-Barnes.

Looking forward to Issue three and would recommend checking this title out. I promise you some laughs, some gunplay, and decent storytelling.  If you haven’t already, grab issue one as well so you can laugh your ass off at the slightly overweight John McClane copycat. Yippy Kai Yay Mother F*ckers!
