RODERICK AND THE CITY OF MORHIL #1 by Eduardo Medeiros, Bruno Freire and Deyvison Manes (STOUT CLUB/COMIXOLOGY ORIGINALS)

Welcome to an all new edition of Parlay Points!

For this entry, Stout Club has recently returned to Comixology originals in a big way. After giving fans such hits as Red Tag and Hailstone, the imprint just released Mistland. Coming off that series debut is a fantasy adventure that has a style all its’ own.

RODERICK AND THE CITY OF MORHIL #1 by Eduardo Medeiros, Bruno Freire and Deyvison Manes (STOUT CLUB/COMIXOLOGY ORIGINALS) prepares to take the audience on a wild ride.

Let’s see how the debut issue stacks up.

*** POSSIBLE SPOILER WARNING ***

Medeiros delves into a few scenarios for this debut. Roderick is an easy character for fans to cheer for. The writing plays him off as blindly optimistic. This leads to his dilemma later. In the meantime, the city of MORHIL takes center stage.

The city is a mixture of fantasy and trouble. Roderick’s naive ways lead him into a sense of false trust. His “friendship” with Dritho fills up the majority of the chapter. Like any new story, there is much world-building happening. This chapter doesn’t escape that theme. The writing leads into a sharp turn heading into the close. With a surprising stat quo change, Roderick’s adventure has enough for readers to swing back through to see what happens next.

The art depicts the overload of Roderick’s faulty perceptions. Panels featuring his reading of Arnold, the Gentle Postman cements his happy attitude. There is a great page panel welcoming readers into Morhil. It comes across as impressive and imposing.

Dritro’s reactions telegraph the eventual twist. There is a sense of distrust looming around him from the beginning. This reflects some of the other residents of the city. Once the art heads into the close, it picks up on Roderick’s troubles. The closing panel is a full page simple splash that makes waves. It’s a great parting shot leading to where things head from here.

FINAL POINT: 7.8

Bright Eyes, Big City sums up Roderick’s venture into mystery with his debut chapter. The writing welcomes readers into the world of Morhil with ease. It is matched by the solid and subtle images leading to a twisting close. There is more brewing beneath the scenes than a simple delivery.
