Bug! The Adventures of Forager #1 (of 6)

   It's always nice to see a comic that is purely fun.

   That's what you get with Bug! The Adventures of Forager - it's a love letter to Jack Kirby and some of his more quirky creations.

   Created in the pages of the New Gods, Bug is a human who lived, disguised, among giant insects. He was (apparently) killed sometime back - but now he's alive and back in action. (Maybe.)

   The issue is loaded with Easter eggs that reference other Kirby characters - including some only the most trivia-minded fan will catch.

   Not that you need a lot of backstory to enjoy this story - it hits the ground running and the weirdness (and the action) doesn't stop until the final panel.

   It's a fun romp from the Allred family - Lee, Michael and Laura combine their writing and art skills and produce a comic that's a heck of a lot of fun!
