Review:

Magnum Khaos is preparing for a mega attack to take over the world and it's up to the members of Brooticus, joined by Hjelmdar, to stop him. They seek the Horn of the Dead to put an end to this, but Khaos isn't going to let them get their hands on that without a fight. Just when you thought Murder Falcon couldn't get more metal, it ups the ante.

After a twist a few issues back, we've been looking at Jake and his relationship with Anne in a new light. This chapter gives us her perspective on everything in a great conversation with Hjelmdar. You might think a guy that looks like the forgotten member of KISS doesn't know a lot about emotion and grief, but you'd be wrong. He saw his entire band swallowed up by Magnum Khaos' forces and he's carrying that survivor's guilt as a heavy burden.

Anne comes to terms with the fallout with Jake in this beautiful and powerful scene. Writer / artist Daniel Warren Johnson outdoes himself with an explosive double-page spread packed with emotion. The sequence leading up to it perfectly encapsulates what music means to people, both those listening and those creating. Anne channels all of her feelings into this one perfect, jaw-dropping moment. It steals the show in an already incredible comic.

Magnum Khaos may look a little weird, but he is one terrifying villain. He's this strange mass of muscle, eyes, and teeth, like a smaller, deformed cousin of something Godzilla would fight. Colorist Mike Spicer gives him a fierce quality with a shocking red color to his skin. There are some sequences that are reminiscent of Carnage from Marvel Comics, which certainly plays into Magnum Khaos' overall menacing quality.

Letterer Rus Wooton adds to this unsettling presence with rough word balloons, shaded in a purplish-red color. These create the feeling of a gravelly voice, like his words come from the fiery pits of Hell itself.

Of course, Magnum Khaos isn't the only monster at work here. He's just the bad guy. The forces of good have their power creatures and they're on full display in Murder Falcon #6. Johnson has a talent for packing a ton of action onto the page to the point where my eyeballs feel like they're going to pop out of my face from excitement. He ratchets up intensity where you can practically feel a booming soundtrack in the distance. It's blockbuster-level comics.

The only negative thing I can say about Murder Falcon is that I just found out there are only two issues left. I would read this series forever, so I'm bummed that it's ending. In any case, it looks like we're setting up for some impressive and explosive finale. You might pick up Murder Falcon for the crazy monsters and impressive artwork. You'll get hooked with the dynamite storytelling, incredible character work, and the exploration of our connection to music. This book is awesome.
