Indy Comic Suggestion: Storm Clouds

Ben Mitchell’s detective story from Australia starts in Storm Clouds. The mystery surrounds a serial killer, booze, drug use, and police that constantly dance at the edge of abusing their position. In other words, welcome to Australia!

Now three parts in, Storm Clouds is the beginning. The writing makes you feel immersed in street life so deeply that when a cell phone appears in the story it’s a little jarring.

Printed in Australia by Dawn Press as a thin, manga-sized book, the art is pleasant and stylish if it does try to make dizzy on purpose—and kudos to Ben for making a simple and brain warping comic.

My copy arrived with a mini comic that expounds on a barely seen character and serves as a hint of things to come. Oh, and look under the flap. There are other elements referenced on Ben’s site.

Birdcage fulfilled the order and… I got a really weird mini comic bonus that’s… unrelated and I don’t blame Ben for.

I’m glad we bought it and look forward to grabbing the other two parts.

For the money, I am pleased with the quality and storyline so far. $9 US got it to my door and I’m giving it 4 cyanide masks out of 5.
