Shelfdust Presents: The Fifty Best #1 Issues


Dec 4, 2022

This week brings a bunch of armed weirdos in a van as we look at the comic which came in 38th place: Copra #1 by Michel Fiffe.

“Inspired” by Suicide Squad, Copra is an action comic with the unmistakable hand of Michel Fiffe on the accelerator. The first issue sets up all the hallmarks of the series as it continues onwards: the gleeful chaos of the fight sequences, the death tally, the attachment to the characters. It also keeps the reader guessing throughout, unsure who is going to make it out alive or how the more eccentric aspects of the story are going to resolve themselves. Chase Magnett joined us to talk about Suicide Squad a few weeks ago: he joins us again to talk about Copra!
