ZED #6
by Michel Gagne (Gagne International Press)

Zed #5Michel Gagne has some twisted sensibilities. His character, a young boy whose invention destroyed an entire planet (with some help from the villain of the piece), blew himself (and another planet) up at the end of the previous issue of Zed, at least to the best of my recollection. This time out, he meets his guardian angel and God, not to mention a few other familiar faces. It's trippy and could easily have come off as morbid or saccharine in the wrong hands, but Gagne makes these unusual meetings and reunions kind of sweet and strange, and his distinctive art style really gives life to the otherworldly backdrop. It's been a long time since we saw an issue of Zed, but I'm glad to see it return, as this quirky, all-ages read remains a great deal of fun. 8/10
