Camille For Real?
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: November 25, 2015
Back at the Institute, Anthony talks to the administrator about him leaving the grounds, but really all of this is just a show and some white lies about how he never left the actual grounds and was only in the abandoned section of the institute because he was scared that he would be blamed for the deaths of the other boys because of his history of being picked on by them. After this pretty reasonable story that doesn't involve trying to stop killer wooden women and collecting animated puppets from World War II, Anthony is let off with a warning and his search for Camille begins. Anthony sends the puppets out to track down their former master and it becomes clear that this institute is really messed up. We've got the janitor hiding out in the abandoned part of the institute, a little girl who Anthony talks to has a collection of teeth under her bed and there are just drawings all over the place of Camille and the puppets from when they were first at the hospital, sparking her urban legend among the children.
In the end, Jester and Blade see Camille as she is about to murder another child and they just go straight on the offensive and start attacking her ass......... Well, Blade does, Jester really isn't able to do all that much when it comes to attacking and even though Blade was knocked away........... and Camille was able to murder another child, it looks like we've got ourselves another mystery because there's blood on Blade's hook. Yeah, it's kind of weird for a wooden woman to be bleeding and as we close this issue out we see Camille go back to her hiding place and patch herself up and man does she just look like she's going to fuck shit up from here on out, even if she isn't the actual Camille from Puppet Master 2.
That's it for this issue of Puppet Master and man I love this series. Yeah, it's hard for me to think that people who aren't into the film series can just go and pick these issues up and understand everything that's going on, but that just tells me that everyone should go out and watch the Puppet Master movies. Yeah, that's not likely to happen, but a man can dream can't he?........... I can't even get my closest friends to watch all the flicks. From the writing that encompasses not only old concepts mixed with new ones to keep the stories fresh, to the amazing art that portrays these stories, Action Labs Danger Zone sure has a handle on this series and surprises me each issue with what care they take to put these comics out. It's really a magical amalgamation between the films and the comics that can make any fan happy and hopefully get a few more fans along the way with these enjoyable stories.
Bits and Pieces:
Puppet Master #9 continues to be a great story arc that has taken a turn from a simple continuation of where the movie Puppet Master 2 left off and added a intriguing mystery along the way and it's got my full attention. While some of the puppets................ well, pretty much Leech Woman is a little over sexualized for simply being a puppet, this series has brought a big smile to my face and has been something that I hoped I'd see since I was a child......... Yeah, I was a weird child. I really hope that this series is picked up by anyone who considers themselves a fan of the film series because it won't let you down.
