A Review: UNCANNY #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of UNCANNY #1 from Dynamite Entertainment. Andy Diggle writes and Aaron Campbell draws.

Weaver’s skills are of the type that can only get him into trouble at some point. And they do. Fortunately, they can also get him out of trouble if he uses them properly. Just as his escape is getting complicated, he meets Maggie. Talk about “right place right time”; we’ll just have to see what it costs him.

This is a book with some great thriller potential. It starts off exciting and manages to keep up the pace, while giving us character info the whole time. (Inner monologues are good for that J ) That there’s a supernatural twist makes it that much more interesting in my book. And the art is really nice; it’s got a helpful sense of realism to it. Weaver may not be a typical good guy, but he’s likeable enough for us to stick with him.

This is a good book, borne of the Dynamite renaissance of pulp thrillers. It’s a modern setting, but that’s not a downside here. Go pick this one up.

UNCANNY #1 is available now at your LCS or online at dynamite.com.
