Slam! #3 Comic Book Review

Pamela Ribon and Veronica Fish are really knocking it out of the park with this series. I cannot stress how much I love the little slice of reality that Slam gives us. When CanCan picks up a less than positive attitude from her new mentor, which rubs Knockout the wrong way. All their issues come to a head on the track, which eventually leads them to realise that the only thing holding them back from their potential…is each other.

This series is relatable to everyone in that it deals with friends and how sometimes we hold ourselves back for them, when we really tell ourselves that they are holding us back. I think this is something we can all relate to because let’s face it everyone has had something that holds them back. Though minor at first and maybe our reasons for doing so or believing we do so where noble but over time the bitterness can be overpowering and then we forget why we made the sacrifice in the first place turning us into an angry shell of what we were and possibly forever altering that relationship. This is some heavy stuff but seeing other people go through this is a real relief to me because it reminds us that we are all only human.

Along with this beautiful story comes the usual art that I have just fallen in love with, Veronica Fish is very talented and she has used her style to bring this world to life and it  always has a positive spin on it.  I guess life is messy and it’s nice maybe even therapeutic to look into someone else’s problems for a change. In the end getting to read more of these girls and their hectic lives is going to be one of this years highlights.
