After what seems like an age Black Mask Comics finally release 'Four Kids Walk into a Bank', a five issue mini-series about, well, four kids who walk into a bank.

The first issue kicks off with a nice scene setter where we meet our four protagonists playing D&D.  The humour, even here, is dark and fun and then we meet these four 11 year olds kids in the flesh, a wonderful mis-match of class nerds who seem to have come together because no one else would want them.  So, I was expecting the usual classroom bully scenario but no, this tale gets dark quick and you suddenly realise this is going to take a few twists over the remaining four issues.

If you enjoy teenage banter, D&D, real stereo typical villains and some very witty one liners make sure this is on your comic stack this week, but be quick the 31,000 initial print run sold out to stores not to mention the plethora of variant covers paying homage to classic crime and heist movies.

If you enjoyed this I’d recommend you check out We Can Never Go Home from the same writer as this jem, Matthew Rosenberg, and Space Riders also on Black Mask.

    OK, I might be a little late to the party, but I'm very happy to hear that Dark Horse will be translating Moebius' World of Edena series of comics and compiling them into one hardcover book.

    Heck, yeah. I don't usually stay up to date on comic books, but I'm pumped to hear that one of my favorite artists is heading up the art for the Star Wars: Poe Dameron comic series.
