Dan Panosian's Slots issue 2 is out today.
It's a wonderful read and my full review can be found on Comiconverse.com but here's a few highlights:
"Panosian takes some time to open up the history of his characters. He lays down the foundation for which the remaining story will be built and it goes some way to explain Stanley’s past life. However, there is still the feeling that not all is as it seems and Stanley’s portrayed track record of lying and conning people makes the reader wonder just how much is to be believed."
"The changing art style between the modern day story and Stanley’s flashback tale of woe is different enough to be noticeable but not enough to disrupt the flow of the story. The bleached coloring effect gives it an impression of age while at the same time reminding the reader that it is a watered down, potentially whitewashed, version of events; this is all told from Stanley’s point of view after all."
Slots has proven to be an enjoyable read and no matter how much time you give it, you will feel as though Panosian is pulling a fast one. It's a confidence trick which will only make sense when the cover is lifted at the end, just like the movie The Sting. If the first two issues are anything to go by it is definitely worth sticking around to see what happens.
Slots is published by Image and Skybound comics.
It was created/written/illustrated by Dan Panosian
At least that's what they are telling us......
