Route 666 #7

Writer: Tony Bedard
Artists: Karl Moline(p), John Dell(i), Nick Bell(c)
Publisher: Crossgen

While supportive of the previous issues of Route 666 I cannot recommend this seventh issue. Tony Bedard seems to have no idea where the book is going, and there's even less focus on Cassie Starkweather the nominal star.

The story itself covers no new ground, and while this makes the book accessible for the new reader. The lack of growth in the story will make it a dull affair for the subscriber.

The artwork by Karl Moline is subpar when compared to his work on Joss Whedon's Fray and indeed his early work on the title itself. The lack of energy in the story seems to suck out any of the verve from his usually kinetic sketches. It's still anatomically correct, but we expect more from Mr. Moline.
