Say hello to the digger sisters, Brittany and Gina.
And they are sisters like any other, though not quite.
Brittany is a lycanthrope, Gina is an archaeologist in the Indiana Jones mold. Their father is a sorcerer, their grand father an undead lich, hellbent on destroying them all. And their mother Julia. lost in a different plane of existence.
And that's just the start of the first volume of Gold Digger.
The second series I will be reviewing from start to finish and another series that has been the work of one man.
In this case, Fred Perry.
This is another action adventure series with a comedic slant, but under the sometimes juvenile comedy and totally out of left field and silly situations, that can only happen in this comic.
There is an emotional centre and the comis can be surprisingly thoughtfull, and mature.
And it then follows it up with a panties joke.
Because that' s how this comic rolls.
It may not be to everybody's taste, but its a fun action adventure romp with emphasis on fun and adventure, even if there are dark undercurrents at times.
And because of the humorous slant, these dark undercurrents hit that much harder when they do surface.
But on the whole, just sit back and enjoy the ride.
This series however is slightly different, because you can read along with me.
For one reason or another, Perry decided to release all previous 199 issues for free.
Free to download.
Free to read.
The link to the Antarctic Library is on the inside cover of every Gold Digger, since issue 200 so feel free to have a peek
In fact, you can find it right here: http://antarcticpresslibrary.com/?cat=1
As for me, this is the series I have the most versions of.
Not just the PDF comics.
But also trade paper backs,
Gold bricks, ( Huge books that collect 30 or more comics. )
and a good chunk of the monthly issues themselves.
So enough for me, to choose from.
We wil be following the original mini series, the first 50 issues of the black and white series and the 150 issues of the color series.
The color series has been released every month since 1999, like clock work.
And the series is still running with issue 230 being released recently.
