Book Review: Sharky! Graphic Novel
Superheroes, Gods and Zombies!
Titan Comics brings us ‘Sharky!’, the first volume in an irreverent superhero graphic novel series by Dave Elliott and Alex Horley.
Sharky is the story of a teenage boy being raised by a single mom, he appears to be your average teen, but he’s not. It turns out that his father is Odin, king of the Norse Gods. Now whenever something sets off his hormones he has the power to transform into the pumped up, seriously strong, Demigod, Sharky!
In this volume we learn about Sharky’s origins, and get to see how he deals with his new abilities during a zombie uprising!
If you love an interesting story and great art that combines action, and cheesy fun, then you need to add Sharky! to your collection. Elliott and Horley are a great team, combining their talents to bring this outrageous world to life. You will really want to get to know these amusing characters, and their stories better. This isn’t your average superhero comic, it’s really so much more, so don’t pass this one up!
