G-Man’s highlights of 2016: Day 6 – DTHRTL


Back in September I managed to get hold of the full run of DTHRTL by Bob Turner and it turned out to be one of the most surprising things I’ve seen from a comic in a long time.

While the typical comic release will combine words and images to tell the story, Bob’s DTHRTL series pushed the boundaries of that to challenge what you’d expect by removing the word element and focusing solely on the visuals.  His layouts glowed with an 8-bit charm as he swept the reader up in a story of cheating death on the run and while it was a fairly quick to get through I was straight back into working through it again because it was so engaging.  Inventiveness at it’s best and with an engaging story which makes this a win-win for anyone who picks it up…..me included.
