Damage Control #2 (of 5)

Comicscore Index
Mixed or average ratings

Based on 3 critic ratings.

From the writers of TV’s the Goldberg’s!

After he nearly caused a Skrull attack in our last issue, the management at Damage Control has wisely chosen to try and place Gus in a less volatile position.

How much harm can Gus do in the Consumer Affairs office, listening to complaints and grievances?

Actually, the answer is a lot.

When things get out of control, Gus has to call on Ant-Man and the Wasp to try and turn a big problem into a little one in a story we call “Honey, Pym Shrunk the Kids”!

Adam F. Goldberg and Hans Rodionoff tap the keys while the incomparable Will Robson turns words into glorious art as Gus makes a horrible first impression on the Punisher, Ant-Man, the Wasp and more!

    If you are a comics fan who enjoys poking fun at yourself and your geeky proclivities, this series is for you. I highly recommend it.

    Damage Control #1 was a perfectly timed comedic curveball of fun, and issue #2 keeps the funny train moving. Unfortunately, it just isn’t quite as captivating this time around. Writers Adam F. Goldberg and Hans Rodionoff create another promising scenario when Gus is moved to the Consumer Affairs department, and the various interactions he has with people making claims do provide a few laughs, just not nearly as many as the first issue, and Gus just isn’t a character I want to spend the majority of an issue with at this point. Some of the attention was diverted from Gus in issue 1 thanks to the many superhero cameos, but here it’s just the Punisher, Groot, Ant-Man, and The Wasp, and even those are all too brief. Artist Will Robson and colorist Ruth Redmond make the most of those though, and even when it’s just Gus and his various customers they find ways to immerse in each person’s story. Overall the issue isn’t bad, it’s just okay, and that might be a letdown after such a fantastic start. Here’s hoping issue #3 finds that comedic goldmine once again.

    Damage Control #2 is a wildly unfunny attempt at showing the absurd side of the Marvel universe. The main character has evolved from an audience placeholder to an annoyingly off-putting idiot in the span of a single issue, so the only thing funny about this issue is the cover price.
