Well, I’ll give it this, there are a lot of moving parts in this issue and I’m not talking about that little bugger growing in the boy’s stomach. That being said, there’s not much action in this issue compared to some, but I think this is a big set up for the next issue. We have demons, cartel bosses, drug dealers, drug users, muscle and many other characters mixed in. They did their best to help the town, but it’s lost to evil forces. There have been too many deaths to count recently. Not to mention a few people convincing, at least themselves that being high on Peruvian marching powder will keep them safe from these demons. El Dorado is always higher than a kite on his product anyway. We have a rat, yes another one. This seems to happen whenever bad people start to feed you to demons and only one chance to live, at least for now. They need to know where Ignacio Martinez is hold up and that’s just for starters.
Writer/Creator Sean Mackiewicz brings us another chapter of what has become one of my all-time favorite horror comics. You may need to read this issue more than once to figure out what he’s cooking. If you think the body count has been impressive so far, you best keep your razor blade and rolled up singles close by because trust me we haven’t seen anything yet! An intriguing chapter, to say the least, I look forward to what Sean has in store for us in another 30 days!
Artist/Creator Niko Walter did his usually wonderful job on this issue. Mat Lopes finished off Nikos’ artwork with great colors to bring this issue to life. Niko and Mat also did the cover on this issue as per the norm I prefer their covers than the variants by other artists, just think it flows better on this title when you get the same style all the way through. Nikos facial expressions in this issue are the best.
I felt this issue just added more polish to these characters, while at the same time they are getting all their pieces in place for someone to flip the table. This wasn’t my favorite issue of the series, but a necessary evil for the overall plot and character development. This issue was in no way boring, it held my interest and entertained me quite well. Gasolina issue #14 is on shelves now, get yours wherever comic books are sold. Remember to please like, comment, share and as always Keep it, Geek!
