This volume is nothing less than a work of art. D.J. Kirkbride has crafted a story that manages to be lush and stark simultaneously; every word, each interaction, either serves to move the story forward or provides intriguing context. Only the necessary words are used, creating a seemingly simple yet quite complex multiverse of meaning. And the artwork is incredible. Vassilis Gogtzilas dashes each page with deliberate abandon, rendering each panel a mini masterpiece. This is the promise of the hyper-real made marvelous. Limbs are lengthened, lines are hatched and squiggled and spattered, creating the most delightful and dynamic sense of immediacy. And Frank Cvetkovic displays superb skill in deftly navigating the disparate dialects of this universe, employing every weapon in his letterer’s arsenal and gifting each race, every character with a distinct voice that is immediately translatable, echoing in your eardrums in precisely the way it’s meant to.
There were sections of “The Bigger Bang” I read several times, just to squeeze every atom of beauty out of them. This collection looks and reads unlike any other comic I’ve picked up; it’s so fantastically full of pretty for the eyes and meaty for the soul. It’s really, rewardingly good. I plan on going back into it several times, but not before I run to pick up “The Biggest Bang #1,” which promises to launch me even deeper into the unique universe created by such a talented team. I’m already strapping myself in. There’s only one thing that I don’t understand. Why don’t you have it yet? Why? This is a journey you definitely want to take. A Cosmos is waiting for you.
Flying space man (whose name is actually Cosmos) is feared by those he helps, doing nothing to resolve the insecurity issues that stem from his origin in the Bigger Bang. King Thulu plays upon Cosmos' need for acceptance, in part by giving him a cosmically desirable space woman to care about. While that should give new import to the title The Bigger Bang, it disappointingly fails to take advantage of that opportunity.
Snappy dialog like "Ultra-Def Trans-Spatial Rift Control Monitors were a mistake!" is sort of funny but most of the writing is New Age pap masquerading as depth. The sketchy art is masquerading as stylish but it's really just sketchy. It's difficult to tell if we're supposed to take the story seriously when talking space whales float around in the story but this is an alternate universe so I guess I can accept the possibility of talking space whales.
Fortunately, the concept and plot are better than the writing and art that convey the story, so I didn't regard The Bigger Bang as a disaster. Unfortunately, attempts to make Cosmos interesting by filling him with guilt and self-loathing just make him whiny, and since he's too powerful a being to be endangered by anything, dramatic tension in the story is lacking. Supporting characters are caricatures of characters (the evil ruler lusting for power, his powerful female warrior who finds Cosmos to be more worthy of loyalty than her evil boss). The talking space whale might be the most interesting character, but it only pops up a couple of times.
