Dastardly & Muttley 1 (November 2017)

Dastardly & Muttley #1

Garth Ennis doing a Hanna-Barbera comic. One with Warner Bros. cartoons references. And gross-out war violence (sort of… war violence, not gross-out, it’s definitely gross-out). What else. Oh, yeah. A man with a dog’s head.

Dastardly & Muttley plays to a lot of Ennis’s strengths–war comics, funny talking heads, reveals–even if it’s a little too slick. Mauricet’s art is gorgeous, but it’s all very controlled. Ennis’s script is all over the place. It’s exagerrated, which helps cover the slightness, and Mauricet’s art grounds it too much.

It’s fun, but it’s not clear if Ennis has plateaued on the fun with issue one.
