REVIEW: Bug! – The Adventures of Forager #1 – Weird and Wild and Unrestrained

From a creative point of view, DC’s Young Animal imprint, curated by Gerard Way, has been a mind-bending success. Letting bold and unrestrained creators cut loose in the wider corners of DC’s properties and push concepts to their limits have produced some of the most intriguing books on the shelves. Now, Young Animal is doing their own take on the Jack Kirby tribute in this the 100th anniversary of his birth with Bug! The Adventures…
