The Complete Bad Company

It’s hard to believe that it’s been so long since I read Bad Company (like 1986, man).

The original Bad Company and Bad Company II: The Bewilderness and The Krool Heart were as good as I remembered, and you can see Peter Milligan’s writing improving as the original series went on. The art on these stories from Brett Ewins and Jim McCarthy is also great.

It’s from there that things start to slide a bit down hill, both story and art-wise (the story Simply not included). No idea why, but it all fails to live up to the earlier stories. The art in “Kano” is bland and poorly coloured and the plotting gets more and more, err, flat. Damn pity.

So while it’s good, it’s really good, and thankfully most of the book consists of this good stuff.
It’s a pity Kano didn’t retire after The Krool Heart.
