Living Up to Expectations: Who Doesn’t Love A Private Dick, Especially, One With Paranormal Issues?

Mysterius The Unfathomable # 2

Writer –Jeff Parker

Art –Tom Fowler

It’s like this. Good detective stories are not the easiest thing to produce. First, you are talking about a somewhat limited format to write in while competing with a monstrous list of incredible authors, most with a good sized body of work that include many different takes of those limited scenarios. Now add cinema, television, and throw in some good old-fashioned newsprint. Are you picking up what I’m laying down? Basically, to create an unpredictable mystery is a feat in it’s self, not to say that there aren’t a number of writers out there finding new ways to keep us in suspense, but those writers are good at there jobs. And their job is, wait for it… to have good ideas. Here’s one, a detective story with magic, nude witches, and Hell… amongst other things. Jeff Parker had that idea and is sharing it with us in a book called “Mysterius The Unfathomable.” (Or as I know it Unfrathomabowlbow!)

Jeff parker has created a perfectly lovable piece of shit of a person for his detective. Granted, this is only issue deuce so we will have to wait and see what happens. What is it that every lovable piece of shit person needs? A complete lovable partner who he can treat horribly but deep down know he is lucky to have counterpart. We definitely find this in a lady named… well we will call her Delfi. All that’s left to fulfill is the mystery. The mystery… that’s a whole nother thing. Which one you want to hear about? A dude who… ummm… something strange is happening to? Or another dude who… ummm… something strange is happening to? All I’ll say is just ask your self one very important question. What is the worst thing that could happen to you as a result of indulging yourself in the company of ladies of the night? (You know? Harlots, whores, tricks, prostitutes… etc.)

Not to mention, Tom Fowler’s art is a perfect fit and beautiful, taboot. I really dig his style. His portrayal of all of these characters seems to reflect the personalities of the people he is inventing with Parker. To be perfectly honest, I could rave forever about why you should checkout this story but true to tradition it will be much more enjoyable to experience it for yo’self. And if yo’self enjoys good comics you should checkout “Mysterius The Unfathomable.”
