Roachmill (Dark Horse)

 RODH   (Dark Horse, 1988-1990)

™ and ©1988 Tom McWeeney

(From the Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

Rich Hedden and Tom McWeeney create a believable seedy, grimy world where gang bosses are bloated monsters, robots and mutates go about their business, and humans and a veritable platoon of assorted aliens mix freely. At the centre of this lunacy is Roachmill, an investigator possessed of an extra pair of insectoid arms, part of the joke being that while all around him is madcap Roachmill himself is forever grim-visaged. The plots are sometimes thin, but masked by Hedden and McWeeney’s rich repertoire of visual gags and general inventiveness. If you like one issue you’ll enjoy them all. ~FP
