Super Knocked Up: One Night Stand #1 Comic Review

Super Knocked Up: One Night Stand
#1 Review
By: Jay
The original web series SuperKnocked Up has given birth to its very own comic book SuperKnocked Up: One Night Stand #1! When the beautiful and deadly super-villain
Darkstar has a one night stand with the handsome and narcissistic superhero
Captain Amazing it makes for an interesting web series. But does it translate
into an interesting comic book? Find out what I think.

Darkstar goes to break out Dr.
Destruction from jail. Captain Amazing and the Guardians of Justice arrive to
stop them. Darkstar and Captain Amazing discover there is more between them
than the law.

Jeff Burns, writer of the web
series, brings his story to the comic book world and expands upon it. This
isn’t just a retelling of the 1stepisode, or the 1st season
of Super Knocked Up. This is a full story of how Darkstar and
Captain Amazing met.  We get to see what happened before they woke up
after their fateful one night stand.

I really liked the expansion of
the first episode. You get a lot of details that because of production costs
and timing we couldn’t get in the 1st webisode of SuperKnocked Up. We get to see some of Captain Amazing away from Darkstar and
just how he behaves with women. Burns does a great job giving us deeper looks
into the personalities of these characters and makes you care for them all the

This issue also introduces you to
some characters like the Guardians of Justice, Dr. Destruction, the girl who
would become Cheery Villain and more. We see some more villains and just more
of this interesting world that Burns has crafted.
The art is done by Donny
Dandakusuma, who brings a nice nostalgia feel to his art. I feel like I am back
in the 80’s early 90’s before comics became super detailed and approaching the
more realistic side of the spectrum. Dandakusuma does a great job showcasing
characters that we may not get to know one-on-one yet. In the big battle splash
page he does a great job showing us what these character’s powers are without
needing it to be spelled out by the writer.
Overall, this is a fun book. If
you’re a fan of the web series you’re going to love this issue, because it
gives you more details. I do want to say though that you do not need to read
this to appreciate the web series, but by reading this you get a greater feel
and appreciation of the series. I recommend picking it up. Go to the SuperKnocked Up website and check out the comic. You can pick this up
digitally (PDF or CBR file), or in printed format. Both are reasonably priced
at $1.99 for either digital download and $4.50 for the printed version and you
get a 28-page story.

That is what I think about this
book. Let us know what you think about Super Knocked Up: One Night
