Issue #5 opens up with Magnum Khaos in the mists of battle. The band Whisperwood faces Khaos proudly but metal doesn’t win this battle. Johnson creates this Kiss like lookin’ band as the first of it’s kind against his monsters. The pages are glorious and colorful. This isn’t the heart of the this tale…Jake does was he should have done before…reunited with Anne. These pages are yet again…touching and real. It’s these human moments in the story that make us and the other characters forget that Jake has a giant walking and talking Falcon as a buddy. It’s also what makes the book cool too. Muph and Anne even share libations and a back story. Each issue of this book tends to also add pieces to it’s legend. The other band mates uncover a weapon of great potential. Murder Falcon gets slight adjustment and the band adds another guitarist. Johnson comes up with some great ideas to advance his story and build further emotion to each story. Let’s hope issue #6 does the same.
