Review by almostnormalcomics for Chicken Outfit #2 and info about our Horror-Rama and Canzine appearances in Toronto on November 1-2.Chicken Outfit #2 is a 38-page, full size, full color comic created by Joe Deagnon and Kirby Stasyna. Published by Chicken Outfit Media.Somewhere nestled in the frigid north among tall, shivering naked trees and frozen Wendigo carcasses there is a lonely man named Joe with an imaginary friend named Kirby. The two fill the empty space between their drug binges with writing and drawing comics about sex dolls, website design, and chicken fetishes. This is one such comic.In this maniacal missive Rusty McDoodle and his little green buddy Stan are working in the porn industry, meanwhile the heavily bandaged Headcast is trying to figure out what his visions mean and Headcast’s buddy Billy is on a never ending pursuit for food. Meanwhile, the remains of Stan’s fully automated homicidal sex doll that he created, tested, and killed last issue have gone missing, and a trio of biker bitches have rode into this issue bringing horrors and sprouting wings and cold sores (harpies with herpes?). Now the only question is…why does Rusty remove his Chicken Outfit when he sleeps, but keeps his chicken gloves, boots, and hat on? And the other only question is, does Rusty sniff his fingers after scratching his private parts? There may be other questions.The artwork in this comic is composed of precise and clean lines, vividly detailed backgrounds, and expertly colored pages. Hard to believe that so much talent and such a polished indie comic could come from such a deranged mind. The art style perfectly supports the bizarre characters and overall story. The page layouts flow from left to right and top to bottom just like my mama taught me to read! Lettering and word balloons and captions are in there too and all are handled nicely and contribute to the comic’s engaging and pleasing look.You can get your greasy chicken eating fingers on Chicken Outfit #2 at Canzine http://www.brokenpencil.com/canzine-toronto Nov 1st,Horror-Rama http://www.horrorramacanada.com/ Nov 1-2,and of course visit http://chickenoutfitmedia.ca/nuggets-chicken-outfit-2-complete/

Chicken Outfit #1 is a 32-page, full size, full color comic created by Joe Deagnon and Kirby Stasyna. Published by Chicken Outfit Media.
In this, the inaugural issue of Chicken Outfit, a weird little green guy builds a fully automated sex doll and while putting the doll through its paces something goes terribly wrong. Elsewhere a friend of the weird little green guy is busy with some self loathing while wearing a chicken suit. Soon the two find themselves together in a dinner commiserating with each other over their plights when they notice something…odd.
Are there darker forces at work? Is there something sinister lurking in the shadows? Will the fully automated sex doll be on the market soon?! And did the guy wearing the rabbit suit that I forgot to mention recover from his beat down?
Lots of questions. One thing that doesn’t need to be questioned is the quality of this comic! The first thing to grab you is the art. It’s spot on! Polished, clean lines render an absurd world made up of strange characters in a familiar, yet somewhat unbalanced city setting. Plenty of attention is given to the backgrounds to carry the mood of the comic and firmly establish the characters in their world. The layout flows nicely from page to page and compliments the timing of the story.
The writing like the art is top notch. The handful of characters introduced in this issue are developed to varying degrees of completeness. Some we can begin to grasp while others remain mysterious…it’s almost like you have to keep reading to learn more. And the underlying story line that connects everything is slowly revealed in hints that have yet to be completely exposed. Great use of rising action to hold the reader’s interest.
Now here’s the real Treat (and it ain’t even Halloween yet!), you can read Chicken Outfit for FREE at http://chickenoutfit.com/issue1/ during the month of October (and that kiddies would be the Trick)!
