Fangirls, I just read this comic, and I already need more.
The Leggettes is a comic that I picked up back at Small Press Expo awhile ago, and hadn’t had the chance to read until now. I’m glad I waited until a less hectic time to read it though, because it’s fun, action packed, and deserves to be in the spotlight. A lot of times when I read comics, I worry about my other thoughts distracting me while I read. If that’s the case with you, read this when you aren’t super busy.
This book is narrated by MC, an (ex) agent of a corporation called DECO. It starts with him working with three phenomenal and unruly lady agents; Morgan, Olivia, and Layla. After a year of working together, the ladies are sent on a mission that MC doesn’t feel quite right about, and for good reason.
Everything seems okay, until Layla finds a giant hole, and the tunnel they were in turns into a hive. Monsters everywhere, the girls die and MC comes very close. He gets discharged from DECO and gets into trouble seemingly quite often. After a brawl leaves him hurt, his friend Ginger drops him off at a circus doctor, and leaves him a holo-message, saying that she’ll never see him again. One of the nurses hands him a ticket to the Leggettes, and once he’s inside the burlesque show, he recognizes Layla, one of the performers. And that’s where it ends.
So you can see why I want more. I want to know what happened to Olivia and Morgan, what types of trouble everyone has been stirring up, and how Layla ended up becoming a burlesque performer. There are so many questions! Belefski does also run a webcomic, Curls, and has a website where hopefully some questions will be answered. If you have a chance, check them out! I really enjoyed the Leggettes, and am excited to read Curls. Keep reading Fangirls!
