“Pew” – Little Girl at the end of the story…


Real friends need not speak a word to each other.

Our less-funny-than-the-title-suggests clown anthology continues with a silent mime story

HAHA is a genre-jumping, throat-lumping look at the sad, scary, hilarious life of those who get paid to play the fool—but these ain’t your typical jokers.

With issues drawn by VANESA DEL REY (REDLANDS), GABRIEL WALTA (Vision), ROGER LANGRIDGE (Thor), and more, HAHA peeks under the big top, over the rainbow, and even inside a balloon to tell a wide-ranging slew of stories about “funny” men and women, proving that some things are so sad you just have to laugh.


Thought Provoking…how do you review something that is basically a silent movie…the work of a Mime in a comic.  It is so simple and thought provoking it is the easiest of books to read, but leaves an after taste of….wow.

This easily has been the best installment of the comic thus far with the prior issues being very heavy in parts and just flat out Joker and Pennywise homages.

However, this story of a mime who finally finds his calling only to have it ripped away.  It reeks of big business, the little man, and the influence it has on generations.  In other words…”Pew!”



None…had this been the first book, I think this series would have resonated with readers as a “Black Mirror” type of vibe.  Despite issues 1 and 2, this one is a home run.  Somehow less is more, and it speaks loads in terms of story telling!  Bravo!


While I was not very appreciative of issues 1 and 2, I hold this issue as one of those comics that can simply stand on its own.  It is light on the reading, but heavy on the thought.  The art is both simplistic but evokes real emotion!  Well done W. Maxwell Prince
