Wednesday, August 13th, Forbidden Planet NYC come check out Weapon Brown, the epic story of Chuck, post apocalyptic survivor, his loyal pup Snoop, and the most disturbingly familiar array of characters ever to grace the comic page. Creator/author/artist Jason Yungbluth will be there signing his little heart out. You haven’t heard about Weapon Brown? Well read on! Read on!
First introduced in the pages of Jason’s comic Deep Fried, Weapon Brown garnered an immediate following, so much so that the he collected the original strips into a 48 page comic in 2003. Jason returned to Chuck and his “pals” in 2008 with Weapon Brown: Blockheads War, which expanded the story from a fairly simple Chuck vs the Peanuts Gang to an expanded universe featuring “weaponized” versions of virtually the entire history of newspaper comics. Make no mistake this isn’t a gimmick book, it’s a tightly written and beautifully drawn post-apocalyptic tale well worth your time…
(…and the gimmick’s are funny too!) I was happy to review this one back in 2013 during the kickstarter (Weapon Brown! A Kickstarter You Should Back!) and enjoyed the book so much I backed it as well, the omnibus edition is gorgeous and a great read!
Weapon Brown gets a 4.5 out of 5! Now make plans to get your but to Forbidden Planet Wednesday August 13th pick up a copy and have it signed by Jason Yungbluth and tell you heard about it at What’cha Reading!
