Recently I picked up this comic called Dancer from the online store TFAW.com. Written by Nathan Edmonson and illustrated by Nic Klein, this was a winning combination I was anxious to grab. The Dancer comic is a winner, as I will explain.
Just to review the Dancer comic plot real quick: An old assassin has a ballerina girlfriend in Italy (I think) whose past comes to haunt him. Now he is on the run and is forced to bring along the woman he loves. He is fired at endlessly by a sniper that will stop at nothing. What will happen to our hero and his beautiful companion?
Obviously I don’t want to give anything away, but the story in the Dancer comics is great. It has a Bourne Identity feel to it, with assassin against assassin. His dancer girlfriend is cute as a button with her freckled face. She doesn’t look like a fantasy girlfriend; instead she looks like one that you would have in real life. Attractive, but not seven-feet tall with gigantic breasts.
As mentioned, the writer is Nathan Edmonson, who also wrote Olympus. He is a very talented writer, as his cult following proves. The Dancer comic is published by Image. You should check to see if there are any copies of the Dancer trade paperback left which will help fill the empty void in your life.
