Zenyaku 5 : Checkmate [October 2020]



32 pages, 26cm x 17cm, Shaun Craike [art] and Susan Torre [story], Visit the Facebook page for ordering info: www.facebook.com/Zenyaku ... Now that the series is complete, I believe that you can get the whole thing for a special price!

This final issue wraps up the story of these human chess pieces [although the characters do have actual names - for example the main character is called Drake - in fact they call each other by their 'rank' from King and Queen through Bishop and Rook down to lowly Pawn.] I've always loved Shaun's art, however it's let down by the awkward, cliched writing [not to mention terrible spelling]. Although, I'll admit that I am by no means part of the target audience... Nevertheless, I would certainly look forward to seeing the progress made in this area if Shaun and Susan unite on another project.

Wotta pleasure to receive another packet of comics from the Dith Dood! Lately his creations are tormented by mosquitoes and spiders dropping in from above. Spiderwebs everywhere too! Of course WuFlu-shaped heads and creatures abound. This issue also features altered High School Yearbook ads from the '50s and '60s. I love these comics so much! But can the Dith Dood keep up such a prolific output? Let's hope so!
