Short Stories – A Dead Good Friend pt.2

Dead Good Friend pt2

Rating: 4/5 – Another Excellent Crime Short Story.
by ComicSpectrum reviewer Stephen Bretall.

Premise
Short Stories is a comic focusing on individual stories of just a few pages in various worlds. It’s not too far along, but is already churning out some excellent content. This review focuses on ‘A Dead Good Friend part 2’ found here: http://shortstories.webcomic.ws/comics/25/ …and check out the first part here http://shortstories.webcomic.ws/comics/1/ and my review of the first part.

What’s Awesome About It?
Although not quite as laser-focused as part one, A Dead Good Friend part two still manages to keep up the killer pacing that made part one so good. The art, while not  spectacular, is still strong with good use of color and well thought-out panel composition. This part seems like a great lead-in to an even larger storyline, but stands alone quite fine as well. Once again, it’s a testament to the creator’s craft that there’s a depth of character and story to this piece that most comics would take an entire extended storyline to deliver, pulled off in just eight pages.

My Thoughts
This is high quality storytelling which I recommend highly. It’s short too, so there’s almost no time commitment! Make sure to read part one first if you haven’t already, and while you’re at it, check out the other comic short stories on the site – they’re quite good too!
