DANGER DOLL SQUAD #0
Three of the craziest books I have ever reader are all coming together for DANGER DOLL SQUAD #0 from Action Labs Entertainment. Creators Jason Martin, Dan Mendoza, and Bryan Seaton have all come together to bring us this zero issue that basically serves to bring in new readers and quickly get them up to speed on who these characters are. Each of the girls is given a few pages that explore their back story and general predicament before everyone’s favorite ghost Ivan brings them together the lay out the true danger they all face. It would seem the enemies of Zombie Tramp, Vampblade, and Dollface have teamed up and attacked Ivan in the Black Room, his digital safe space. Now the three heroines must band together if any of them is to make it out alive.
The setup is slightly ridiculous but who cares because the Danger Zone line from Action Labs is all about fun books and over the top action. DANGER DOLL SQUAD #0 works incredibly well as a introduction to who these girls are and what kind of ass kicking they are all about. There is very little setup for the actual crossover other than the fact that the three face a combined danger from all their foes. However what this issue does have is a really funny and well written guide that will bring any and all new readers up to speed in a hot minute.
Art from Celor, Marco Maccagni, and Winston Young rounds out the package and gives readers the added bonus of seeing someone else’s take on these characters. The individual titles for Zombie Tramp, Vampblade, and Dollface all feature consistent ongoing art so it is nice to see another artists perspective on something other than variant covers. All three deliver beautiful pages to complete this package. The actual meeting of the three and their descent into the Black Room will be covered in Vampblade #6 – #8 and the first issue of DANGER DOLL SQUAD will hit shelves in October so be sure to put in your orders now at World’s Coolest Comics.
