Unnatural #8 Review - Here Comes The Bride...
Updated: May 22
• Mirka Andolfo (Writer/Artist/Colorist/Cover)
Unnatural #7 was a decent issue but it was the first issue in the series that felt like filler. This issue is a return to form and closes out the second arc in the 12 issue mini-series. It gives us resolutions to some key plot points while raising new questions to be sorted.
I trust Mirka Andolfo. Leslie and Khal are probably the most unconventional comic book characters you'll ever run across but they are all interesting, even the villains. Whenever the story seems to be running out of steam, a new element has always been introduced to keep me engaged.
Leslie and Khal form a deeper connection in the issue. We also get some insight into just how powerful Leslie can be when she merges with "The Albino". The comic ends with a massive reveal regarding "The Glance" character. My jaw dropped a few times as the "Oh Shit" moments kept coming.
Issue #7 felt as if Mirka may have been rushed or unfocused but this issue is back on track. There is very little to complain about. The art direction is simply gorgeous and the comic works as a single issue or part of the whole.
I can't imagine anyone picking this book up randomly and not being invested in knowing what happens next. It was also pretty cool to see Joe Madureira producing the variant cover for this issue.
Unnatural continues to be one of the best comics on the shelves. In a sea of mediocre books, it stands head and shoulders above many of the comics being produced by the big 2 right now. You owe it to yourself to check it out.
