Comic of the Week: Fly #5
And now volume one comes to it’s conclusion as we see the final confrontation between Eddie and Danielle. Gregory gives us a story of a man at the end of his rope that is willing to take drastic steps in order to try to get his life back. It’s all the more intense since we have watched the early days of the Eddie/Danielle romance in the flashback portions of the book. We still don’t know all the details about what happened between these two but Gregory has managed to make us care about them, despite what they each became.
The art by Eric J. has been stellar to say the least. Easily one of the best looking Zenescope books on the stands each month, each issue he has gotten better and better. I would love to know how he managed to create and use two totally different styles on the book. It made The Now and The Then really stand out as separate, yet unified stories. From the ad in the back of the book, a new artist will be joining Gregory for volume two. I hope he knows the size of the shoes he is going to be trying to fill.
Raven Gregory has created a very deep, multilayered mythology with Fly in only five issues. My hope is that we will be getting new volumes of this series for years to come. I can’t wait for the trade paperback and Fly gets my highest recommendation. Go read this series.
