Review | TERROR ASSAULTER: O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror)

Comics Alliance reviews TERROR ASSAULTER: O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror). Check it out here.
Fantagraphics' new version of Terror Assaulter: OMWOT is actually a full-length graphic novel expanding on a 32-page mini-comic that Marra put out last year — and that minicomic might be my favorite thing that he's ever done. Like all of Marra's Traditional Comics, it's an over-the-top tribute to the black-and-white boom of the late '80s, but OMWOT takes it a step further. It's the comic that the weird kid in your class would draw after half-watching an "erotic thriller" on cable in 1992, in the absolute best way, and the single greatest gag in the whole thing is that everyone — everyone — is constantly just bluntly stating what they're doing, as they do it, with no inflection or emphasis."
