Five Weapons #4 by Jimmie Robinson
I think I’ve written about this series every month, but that’s ok, because it’s so fucking cool. Last issue, Tyler beat Rick the Stick, the head of the Staff Club, and competed against Darryl the Arrow in a race to win a date with Jade the Blade. Yes, all the club presidents have rhyming names, and that’s ok, because, despite being a story about a school for assassins, writer and artist Jimmie Robinson seems interested in, above all, simply having fun. Now, there are just two issues left of this awesome series, and so many questions left to answer. Will Tyler win a date with Jade? Will his secret be found out? How does Nat the Gat, President of the Gun Club, fit into the staff scheme to get Tyler kicked out? This has been one of Image’s best mini series this year, and every issue is worth checking out.
