Free Comics Now! reviews is proud to present the free comic of a comic I got for free from Comixology that happened to come out on Free Comic Book Day. For free! Will wonders never cease?
So this appears to be a series, The Secret Adventures of:, judging by the colon, and maybe only this issue centers on Houdini. I don’t know yet. I do know that I enjoy historical fiction, especially with well known people, such as Tesla. Houdini used to be a point of interest for me as a kid, so I am eager to give this a shot. The cover looks watercolored, which may or may not work. I was taken in by a good cover once, and I don’t want it to happen again.
We open in teh Czech Republic, 1908. A small girl is terrified as her father is beaten and dragged away by some mutachioed men. His crime? Something to do with blood. Suddenly, a golem appears, only to be sent away by a mysterious man in a cloak.
Damnit. Again, I was taken in by the promise of an exciting story. I should know by now, free does not always equate to good. This is 3 times in a row I’ve been disappointed here. Much like this otehr comic, this week was not a full story. Instead, it was a few pages of a tale that was cut short and stuffed with information and sketches.
Booooooo this comic. I feel as though I’ve disappointed you, my loyal readers. And so I pledge, I will review another free comic this week, and will continue to do so until I find a good one. Stay true to me. I will bring you light.
