Heart #1 Comic Book Review: The Heart is Hard to Find
The first thing that grabbed me about this issue is how wonderfully the cover art segues into the very first panel of page 1, as the open fist of the cover turns into a closed one to begin the opening fight of Heart, a limited series that tells the story of a MMA fighter in a fictitious league (Monster MMA).
The art by Kevin Mellon has a sketch-y appearance, with barely any inks and giving the impression of faded pencils. It’s a unique look, but it seems purposefully half-finished and amateur-esque. Perhaps this is to echo Blair himself, who is still developing and has yet to reach his full potential. Like many Image books the art is also black and white, adding to the sketch-ish feel.
