Manifest Destiny #6 by Chris Dingess, Matthew Roberts and Owen Gieni
Manifest Destiny is one of those books that enjoys making the American hero look like a big fat arrogant moron, too caught up on the idea of glory and bravery to make decent decision. It's the native girl that the troops are after, who actually saves the soldiers slumbering inside the flower (apparently that's what happens before you are digested-sleep).
This is what I read when I need a laugh and when I want to believe in the ridiculous. So far the story hasn't struck me as serious which I'm actually liking. Most humorous comics bore me, or serve as spoofs for some popular drama. Manifest Destiny doesn't appear to be making life of any particular run that I know of. Therefore I find it unique and enjoyable. Usually when I see Minotaur-type monsters, I think Elfquest and then get pissed off. Obviously not the issue this time. OMG I hate Elfquest.
