Review of Huck

Is there anyone that loves Captain America as much as our very own Scotty Cook?  We think not. But what does comics addict do when looking for a new character to love? Here is one man’s explanation.

As many of you know, my area of expertise while writing for ComiConverse has been anything and everything Steve Rogers. The last few months for me have been a roller-coaster ride of emotions, as it pertains to Captain America and the reinvention of Steve Rogers.


First, we had one of my favorite Steve Rogers story arcs of all time, Planet Hulk.

How can you beat that concept?

Steve Rogers as a Viking-esque gladiator, fighting to rescue Bucky, on the back of his Warbrother, Devil Dinosaur. There was so much weeping, gnashing of the teeth, and pulling of the hair with me when that run ended.

It looked like a scene straight out of the Old Testament in my house.

Next, there was Captain America: White. Great story arc, amazing art, and the heartbreaking thread of Steve Rogers remembering the young Bucky Barnes. This story arc brought the old school back, with Bucky being a teenager, not a bionic armed psychopath out to kill his former best friend. I would recommend this arc to any Cap fan, but the story ends too abruptly for me.

I wish the characters would have had more time to develop and the writers would have explored more within the world.

Lastly, Sam Wilson: Captain America. I have said it before and I will say it again, Sam Wilson is a great Captain America. I have endorsed Marvel’s choice in handing the Cap mantle over to Sam since the beginning. The way they have fused his Falcon attributes with that of classic Cap is awesome. With that said, the new story arc has taken a very weird twist.

I never thought I would say those words again. I am sorry, but I don’t want to have a Twilight-themed Captain America story or werewolves in the comics I read. Besides that all my friends and family can tell you I have always been, and always will be, Team Edward.

Just joking but not really. Anyways…

The writers have so many interesting ways they could go with Sam Wilson as a character and it seems like they are going out of their way to drive people away from a very deep character with massive potential.

I will say again, I fully endorse Sam Wilson but not a huge fan of the direction Marvel is going with the current story.

With all that said, I began to comb the shelves of my local comic shop and found the comic that lifted my spirits once again.

What comic could draw me away from Steve Rogers you ask?

I will tell you in one word: Huck

The new series, Huck, by Image Comics is so simplistic and raw, it brings tears to my eyes. In a day and age where writers and artists are pushing the limits of comics to new heights, Huck stuns with a simple yet dramatic storyline and art that jumps off the page. Its taking everything in my power not to tell the ComiConverse world everything about the first three issues, but I will restrain myself.

Story continues below

Let me just say, this is a story about an ordinary guy, with super powers, trying to do good every day in his small town. Is there superhero stuff in the stories, yes, but it is such a beautiful story about a guy making a difference by being nice.

Wow, what a concept right?

On some levels it is also raises a great sociologic question: If our world found a person with super powers, would we let that person live in peace or try and exploit them?

I will leave this question and many more for you to answer for yourself.

Huck will not disappoint and it may even make you smile. Have fun reading!
