Sparta U.S.A. #4

(SPOILERS) Blue-skinned Nazi’s versus Red-skinned Americans (well, ONE red-skinned American). This is the weird turn this series has taken. What still has me frustrated about this series is that we’re almost done and I’m afraid two issues isn’t going to be enough to wrap up everything that’s been laid out here. Does it have to be? No, but I’d hope for some sort of closure before the end.

Although, I will say Timmons topped his scene from issue 2 of lead character Godfrey standing in the middle of the football stadium, sword drawn with a bonfire in the background. This time Godfrey rides into the stadium on a horse with his sword drawn; followed by his female commandos (which double as his harem).

Sparta U.S.A. #3

“Various Cancers” (No Spoilers)
The novelty of wondering what is really going on in this story is staring to run out for me. We do have some interesting moments but I don’t find myself attaching to any of the characters. I’m not sure I like the main character, Godfrey McLaine, because even though he’s trying to help these people, it’s hard for me to root for a guy who’s got a harem of women following him AND a wife and three kids. Of course, the morals in Sparta are definitely different than most people’s so who am I to judge?
