PVP Vol. 6: Silent But Deadly
Scott Kurtz
Image Comics
$14.99 US (paperback)
**** (out of five)

Brand new look; really old stories.

Brent, Jade, Cole, Francis, Skull the troll and the rest of the gang at PVP magazine return in the sixth print collection of Scott Kurtz’s Eisner Award-winning webcomic, one that changes things up a bit with a new three-panel-per-page look that helps keep the flow of multi-strip storylines going well.

That only thing that keeps this book from being a true gutbuster is the fact the strips are all from 2006 and thus many of the wonderfully witty and astute pop culture jokes that make this strip so popular are pretty dated.

Here’s hoping Kurtz and Image Comics will start pumping out these collections a little more frequently so readers can get the same laughs from the print version as they do from at www.pvponline.com.
