Best Review Ever! THE DRUDE Volume 1: Hanging Out & Hung Up On The Line
TITLE: THE DRUDE Volume 1: Hanging Out & Hung Up On The Line
PUBLISHER: DevilsDue/1First Comics
WRITER: Omaha Perez
ILLUSTRATOR: Omaha Perez with Manuel Martin
EDITOR: Bill Williams
COVER: Tony Talbert and Paul Mounts
SUMMARY: Boris Drude has one ambition in life, to get loaded and have a good time! He can ignore the ghost living in his closet and the fact that his new girlfriend won’t kiss him, but when Reptilian Aliens take notice of him his life goes seriously off the rails!
COMMENTS: Drude is one interesting dude. Part of the comics is Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll, as Drude in the punk rock band “the MILF” and his proclivities for sex and drugs are both featured in the comic.
The comic starts out with the Drude dead, but don’t worry, he gets better. I know all comic book deaths are just temporary, but it is really almost just an inconvenience for The Drude.
Behind everything is a back story about the “Reptilian Elite”. Now many of the readers may not have heard about this. It sounds a little odd.
But… it’s a real world thing, not a comic book thing.
Don’t take my word for it, this is from the Time Magazines Website…
“They are among us. Blood-drinking, flesh-eating, shape-shifting extraterrestrial reptilian humanoids with only one objective in their cold-blooded little heads: to enslave the human race. They are our leaders, our corporate executives, our beloved Oscar-winning actors and Grammy-winning singers, and they’re responsible for the Holocaust, the Oklahoma City bombings and the 9/11 attacks”.
So, that is the back drop and set up for The Drude. It is fun, lighthearted, and it is a little bit like a Cheech & Chong movie. I loved the comic I am sure you will feel the same way too.
