Review:

This has been in my Comixology queue for quite some time, so I figured that reading it was long overdue.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from it, as it appeared to just be a comic adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s most famous book and most famous movie based off of any of his works.

And frankly, that’s exactly what this is. But that’s also not a bad thing, as I love the story in both of its previous forms and seeing it come alive in the comic book medium was pretty cool.

If you know the story, there isn’t much here that deviates from it. It’s just cool seeing it in a different medium.

Additionally, I really liked Troy Little’s art and it was sort of its own neat thing, even if it did draw some inspiration from the Ralph Steadman art that typically accompanied Thompson’s literary work.

All in all, for fans of Hunter S. Thompson, this is a worthwhile ride.

Rating: 7/10
Pairs well with: the book it’s based on, as well as Hubter S. Thompson’s other books and films that have been based on them.
