Lopresti ends this mini-series with plenty of the humor and wit that he started it with.
Dr.Cruel reveals his plan for World domination, resurrecting Eva Braun (Adolf Hitler’s girlfriend) who will give him the motivation he needs to rule the planet. Kenny of course stops him, rescues his own girlfriend and hands Dr.Cruel over to the FBI. The book ends with Kenny planning to rescue his father.
This issue was the funniest one Lopresti wrote so far, carrying the self-awareness of a Marvel film. Every insane aspect of the story is acknowledged and poked fun at. None of that overshadows the art which Lopresti also handles.
Giant robots, cartoonish-sized bombs, and a Bride of Frankenstein inspired Eva Bride are all rendered with his usual style of detail and rugged style sensibility. His panel composition also keeps the story moving brisk and understandable.
Overall, Lopresti has proven he knows how to draw and tell a story that he wrote. With some assistance from Deering, HI-FI and Heisler, he has a solid miniseries under his belt that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Rating: Poor, Fair, Good, Great, Excellent
