Rezension zu "Fantomah Volume 01 Up From The Deep" von Ray Fawkes

A tale of revenge
Cattievor 10 Monaten

Lately, I have gotten the hang of comics and graphic novels. I have always read the occasional graphic novel, usually something Sherlock Holmes themed, but I'd like to get into more genres and Fantomah seemed like a good opportunity to get into comics, as it has a badass female protagonist and supernatural elements.

Story:

The story starts quite promising, but by the end, it had somehow lost its grip on me. The comic is quick-pacing, however, this does not allow for insights into the characters, especially Paz. We know only a few things about her and her background (although she seems to like to keep to herself, so this is not necessarily the fault of the story). I hope the next issues will draw upon her character in more detail, to understand her motivations and actions.

Moreover, while the general idea behind the story sounds thrilling, there is a lack of surprising plot twists, in my opinion. Yes, some actions did not go into the direction I thought it would, but there are still some stereotypes included that made it not entirely unique and original.

Characters:

I really like the protagonist, Paz. She is such a strong, female character and is determined to fight for her younger siblings. Her family is more important to her than anything else and she is desperate to do anything it takes to keep them safe - even if that means leaving corpses on the way. It's good to see an independent, strong young Latina fighting her way through the story and kicking some a**es on the way.

Her father seems to have some secrets he has not let his daughter in on and now it might be too late for that. He has a lot of potential to determine the fate of the story and Paz.

Drawing:

The colours are very bright and there are a lot of lilac and neon-tones in it, referring to the supernatural elements of the story. Some pictures are kept more minimalistic and the background is often rather blurry, although this indicates that the main events are happening in the foreground. Additionally, I sometimes felt like the proportions of the characters are a bit off.

All in all, I enjoyed this comic, although it could not manage to thrill me completely. It's a quick read, yet the story did not include many unforeseeable plot-twists or interesting turns, even though the initial idea is nice.
