I’ve never read Doll Face before, but we have been selling it very well for months during our Facebook Live Sales (here: https://www.facebook.com/MadOxGamesandComics) for the past 6 months or so, with a growing and growing demand. I didn’t realize until today this comic is by/from the same team that does Zombie Tramp, which is very popular with our customer base. I decided this week to read just two comics. One was the new Legacy #1 from Marvel. Dollface #9 is the other.
I find the art of Dollface quite different from my Walking Dead and Marvel art preferences. I’ve been reading Marvel since the 15¢ cover price era, and have gotten used to that, I guess. But Dollface was fun. Dreamy art is what is feels like to me. The comic is about a witch-hunting doll who teams up with a ghost looking apparition. In issue 9 she travels on a school break, so I don’t think this may be a typical issue. I enjoyed the art quite a bit, and based on that, I will likely seek out back issues or the first trade to read and see if it is something I should add to my monthly pull of comics.
Majorspoilers dot com said this about Dollface #9:
Still feeling responsible for the death of Emily’s girlfriend, Lila goes off on her own to reflect on who she was and what she has become.
Marcus Again: I don’t know all the players, yet. But, the story is interesting enough with the chain smoking, tatted up main character, the witch hunting doll, and the apparition.
I liked it. I liked it enough to do it’s review before I do the Legacy #1 review, which I am still not sure about just yet…
