Black Hops Volume 3: Hopocalypse Now is created, drawn, and colored by Timothy Lim. It is written by Mark Pellegrini and published through Iconic Comics after a successful crowdfunding effort.
Penelope, after going through rigorous training, joins USA GI, Patriot-R, and Rigor Tortuous to rescue a hostage held by the villainous Apex Moth and the ruthless assassin Hare Trigger. They are joined by secret agent Sawyer and joined by his dog Commando-G. With the team working together, they search for the hostage, but things are not as simple as they seem. Soon, a simple search-and-rescue turns deadly as the villains reveal a deadly plot.
I would like to say the artwork is impressive. As I have said previously, Lim is impressive and he does a good job of bringing the characters to life from off the page. From the front cover to the story, he designs Penelope, Sawyer, and the animal bunch to perfection.
As for the story, I loved it. I am only sad I did not review it sooner. It is a blast! Lim and Pellegrini truly know their stuff and exactly what their fans are looking for. We do not get sad-sack heroes or Mary Sues, but well-built characters who all have some sort of stake in the fight. Of course, it does not hurt to have cute and fluffy animals giving you a hand.
In full disclosure, I did support this campaign and I’m glad.
