Cosby and McCool’s PIGS is winning fans all over the place and its not hard to see why. Terrorism, espionage and political intrigue are running through this book alongside characters that are becoming more individual and more defined as the series progresses.
The PIGS boys have been kind enough to let me read issue #3 and yes, you should be very jealous as this comic book is really climbing up through the gears! In #3 you’ll see the dynamics of the group changing as Felix joins the team under duress. Can the others trust him? Can Felix trust them to keep their side of the bargain? Lots of questions, no answers yet but hey, its only #3!
PIGS #3 gives us further insight into the background of the team by way of these excellent flashbacks to their childhood in Cuba. Expect them to be more brutal than before. Is it wrong of me to be cheering Havana and Ekaterina and Co on?
This book not only shines in the flashbacks but also in the scenes where we have the whole group together, whether its the parents in a flashback in Cuba or the current team sitting around in a hotel room preparing for action. The dialogue is witty and clever and the art has come on brilliantly, really enhancing the tense and explosive atmosphere of many of the panels.
If you haven’t got PIGS on your pull list yet, take my advice and sort it out. The price of #3 alone has got to be worth that cover.
PIGS #3 is out Nov 9th 2011 and is written by Nate Cosby & Ben McCool with Art by Breno Tamura. The shit hot cover is provided by Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts.
