Fashion Beast 5 (December 2012)

903966

And this issue has another big twist. It’s hard to guess whether there are any more coming up or if the big surprises only come before the halfway mark.

It’s hard to see where Fashion Beast is going in general. This issue has a handful of conversations, the bridging pages and not much else. But very little has actually happened. One of the big incidents this issue is actually something I assumed had already been resolved. Maybe Johnston isn’t allowed to add dialogue; a film script isn’t a comic script, after all. There’s no forced pacing to the comic, which the script clearly needs.

The dialogue anyway.

Tomboy continues to be the lead this issue, with the custodian girl seemingly flirting. Doll has become unlikable. All the good will the comic built for her is used up.

It’s okay–definitely intriguing–but only because the cliffhanger promises answers next time.
