CT Review #2: Buddy Cop Fantasy Therapy Hour

This time, Dr. Haus tries to be a relationship therapist while reviewing a comic that's been floating around the Buzzcomix 100 for awhile now, entitled The Prime of Ambition. You can read it here.

It's true, the majority of said review focuses on just two characters from the story, but then again, that's where the creators of the comic have put their focus on so far. The sun elf literally spends an entire chapter arguing with the drow/black elf (I haven't paid attention to the whole Forgotten Realms shtick) about pointless shit while threatening to kill him or feeling threatened by him. The entire time I read this, I kept thinking of a few of those buddy-cop movies that were based around an uptight white man who gets paired with a loose, streetwise black guy (i.e. Steve Zahn and Martin Lawrence in the lukewarm National Security, or Robert DeNiro and Eddie Murphy in Showtime). They always argue with each other because their two different personalities just won't mix until they decide to work together to take down the bad guy of the story in the last 20 minutes.

As for the "TV Tropes" I mention in the review: Do not dig through that site unless you have a lot of free time, because it can be fucking addictive.

My next review here will deal with a lesser-known comic that thought putting a number in place of letters was a good move. On the other hand, the protagonist looks like Samuel L. Jackson with a slight goatee.


  • Ah...I noticed you mentioned Ratification of Lambs. I was meaning to change that for a while now but I haven't yet XD

    Anyway, good review.
