BLACKED OUT #1 by Max Young

If other “superheroes” can shoot laser beams out of their eyes, get bitten by radioactive spiders, or come from other planets, then why not gain uncontrollable strength from binge drinking? Isn’t that just as random and ludicrous? Young’s immersive two page spread pulls you right into this world full of sharp and consistent line work. The quick story upends traditional fratboy humor and behavior, suggesting there’s something nightmarish lurking beneath the surface. The introduction of a mysterious Yoda-like mentor with answers perhaps plays a little cliché, but I like to think that Young is just attempting to subvert and mock this standard genre trope. It’s full of mostly fun and carefree dialogue, and promises more adventure to come, from a creator steadily building a body of work worth checking out. Grade B+.
