Comic Book Review: Jirni #5 - Aspen Comics (2015)

Written by JT Krul
Art by V Ken Marion

Women are enslaved and it's up to a brave purple woman to free them.  It doesn't appear the women want to be saved and this is where this violent story is heading.

Jirni #5 was inside of my pull list box at the local comic shop.  This tends to happen whenever I go in to get my comics.  There's usually some books I didn't ask for along with me searching the store for the books that are missing.  I usually set aside the books that I did not ask for but this time, I sent my wife to pick up my comics.

Jirni is a book I had not heard of and here I am doing a review of #5 having not read anything leading up to it.  With that being said, this is a good looking comic book.  The story is engaging enough to keep you interested.  The art is insanely beautiful.  I don't know if it's an every month book, but just looking at each of these panels makes me want to start drawing.

The action was pretty intense as well.  The fights were very violent and very bloody.  Our purple warrior woman makes quick work of anyone who steps out of line with her.  I may need to pick up the other books in this series to see what lead to such violent affairs.

I will say, reading this story from issue five brings me back to my younger days when a person would pick up a comic book regardless of what issue number was on the cover.  I feel like so many readers are so concerned with reading from issue number one, they lose sight of what they could be reading.  Grab a book, read it and keep going from there.  We don't need to start these series over every couple months.  Besides, most of these series that start over at one are not exactly starting the whole origin over.
