Shirtless Bear-Fighter! #1 Review (Jody LeHeup, Sebastian Girner)

Shirtless Bear-Fighter is as daffy a comic as the title suggests. Bears invade Major City and for comedy reasons the Army is unable to stop them from rubbing their bear asses (geddit?) on everything. One FBI Agent must get Shirtless Bear-Fighter to come out of retirement for one last job and defeat the bears before the government sends in the nukes!

This first issue sets the silly, campy ‘80s-style action movie tone. Shirtless Bear-Fighter lives in a bear-fur house in the woods and flies a plane made of bear furs – the Bear Plane. He’s perpetually naked and his huge schlong (always in frame) has to be pixelated. Even in his flashback origin, baby Shirtless is bearded with a giant pixelated wang! And his currency is flapjacks and maple syrup.

It’s an amusingly bonkers read that was kinda fun for an issue but the premise started to wear a bit thin towards the end. Like last year’s Grizzly Shark, Shirtless Bear-Fighter’s wackiness could get tedious over its proposed five issue run but this first issue’s not bad and good for some easy laughs.
