BLACK’S MYTH #1 Comic Book Review

In this Issue, (SPOLIER ALERT) you will meet a bloody Strummer that pulls a bullet out of her side. The bullet is made out of silver! Then she takes a few swigs of Whiskey with her roommate and talk about their latest case. Now I know your hooked! Black’s Myth is a new comic book that features a werewolf as private investigator and djinn as her personal assistant. Of course, who can forget her dog named Grim as well! She is following a case for a client when someone tried to take her out. While recuperating in her home, her assistant makes a discovery in the case that leads to a car accident. Then they find a clue that helps them learn more about their assailants but then one even tried to attack Strummer in an alley. A major client presents something new for her to find and that will lead to another issue of a fantastic journey for Strummer and Ben.

I have to say I enjoyed reading this first issue of Black’s Myth! This new comic has everything I enjoy which are music references, werewolves, gore, and funny sarcastic jokes. Strummer is a badass private investigator that may have gotten a bit too close in the action in this issue. I was shocked the bullet that was fired upon her was a silver bullet and she squeezed the sucker out in the bath tub as well. Her assistant Ben seems like a person that is calm, level headed and will be there for his buddy. In this issue, we had some good backstory that is relevant to the story now where Strummer is following somebody for her client yet someone is out to get her at the same time. The silver bullet, information about client, and then the ending of the issue smells like a winner here!
