One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Knight and Squire #1

Okay . I finally got it!

BAD THING: There's really not much action here and not much of a plot to this issue. What little there is involves a setting (i.e. A magical bar that is enchanted to allow enemies to meet peacefully) that is just an excuse for a lot of jokes about superheroes and British culture.

GOOD THING: Thankfully, the jokes are very funny. It's a bit like Callahan's Crosstime Saloon meets Hero Happy Hour. That's meant to be a complement to all involved, for the record.

The Final Verdict: There's not much of a story beyond "The British Batman and Robin (who is a girl) go to a magical pub and have a few with their fellow heroes and a few villains." Thankfully, that's all the story it needs and all the set-up we need for a riotously funny comic. You have to appreciate anything which turns the Benny Hill song Ernie (He Drove The Fastest Milkcart In The West) into the basis for a superhero and a super-villain.


  1. Just in time to get issue #2, so you can explain the blasted thing to me! :)

  2. Soon as my shop gets it. They were sold out today.
