Adolescent Radioactive Black Belt Hamsters (Dynamite)

Adolescent Radioactive Black Belt Hamsters (Dynamite)

Genre: Comedy

Tom Nguyen’s art is real purty, as are Moose Baumann’s colors. These are, apparently, the second round of hamsters, as “The four” are referred to a couple of times, and it’s apparently not the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Keith Champagne’s one-liners are pretty funny, but they’re weighed down by the perpetual quotes from and references to the action stars who comprise the Hamsters’ identities. It gets old quickly after the introductions. Also, they all die at the end of the first issue, so who’s going to be fighting Genghis Khan in the second?

Brendan McGinley is a long-time writer for ComicBase. His comic favorites include anything featuring Grim Jack, Punisher, Guy Gardner, Green Lantern, or written buy Evan Dorkin, Grant Morrison, Alan Moore, Deadpool… and the list goes on. But he insists he is of discriminating tastes.
