    You Don't Read Comics

    The decision to make Sprout entirely nonverbal might be the single most defining decision in the entire story. So much of the rest of it is a weird construct of different tropes all pasted and plastered and duct-taped together…a bit like something Sprout herself might come up with to detain gun-toting pursuers. The heart of what makes Klik Klik Boom so fun is the fact that there ARE no words coming from Sprout. There’s no first-person narration. There aren’t any thoughts. Only actions and polaroids. It’s such a cleverly distinctive form of characterization for one of the most promising new characters to emerge on the comics rack this year.

    If you are a fan of action films like John Wick or samurai flicks like Zatoichi then you may want to give this a go. It’s nothing like them and at the same time could hold its own in the landscape of action-adventure greats.

    Comic Watch

    Klik Klik Boom is one of the best stories to come out from the comic industry this year. A perfect balance of humor, action, mystery, and drama, this series is worthy of everyone’s pull list.

    Major Spoilers

    Klik Klik Boom #2 pairs up two vastly different young women. Sprout has saved Serena’s life, but Serena may be able to help Sprout on her mission. Was their meeting truly serendipitous?

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Klik Klik Boom #2 continues the miniseries with heavy doses of action, humor and a touch of pathos. Sprout, with her unique way of communicating and her combat prowess, is a fantastic character and I look forward to seeing her battle with Minerva World Services rage on next issue. Recommended.

    Nerd Initiative

    The odd couple pairing of Serena and Sprout are tasked with finding a way to survive with mounting pressure. Wagner’s writing keeps readers glued in, constructing a multi-leveled tale. This is matched panel for panel with exceptional art from Dabbs and Wilson, giving readers much to ponder while figuring out the true mission at hand.

    Klik Klik Boom #2 continues the story of Sprout in spectacular fashion as the comic molds itself into one of the most inventive stories of the year. Wagner’s duel-timeline script opens the writer up to a delightful balance of storytelling opportunities, allowing readers to examine the protagonist across all of time in a single issue. Though Dabb’s lines are traditionally better when there’s action aplenty, the gun fight here is expansive enough that only the couple of pages it takes place on are impactful enough.

    AIPT

    What this book does foster is endless charm — a charm that’s goofy and dark and a little dumb but mostly in the very best ways. Because at the end of the day, the book knows what it is beyond its core gimmicks and shtick: about how we connect with the world and the ways we’ll fight to preserve or honor these bonds. The fact that it can shed blood and feature glitter dance parties along the way is the definition of an added bonus.
