REVIEW: Warlash: Cold Metal Mayhem
Book Title: WARLASH: COLD METAL MAYHEM
Book Description: Warlash is a hero that reminds one of Judge Dredd or Robocop. The only notable difference is Warlash has a tail like the creatures in Alien. In Warlash: Cold Metal Mayhem we get three short stories about the newest small press publishing hero to come across Indie Comix Dispatch’s radar.
In the first story, “Grubbs”, we have a tale about a man so consumed by lust and vengeance that it destroys the very fabric of his being. “Enter the Generator” teaches a valuable lesson about the Golden Rule. “Cold Metal Mayhem” is an awesome tech/mech clash of the gladiators.

Warlash: Cold Metal Mayhem wasn’t on my radar until I saw this cover on the racks of my local comic book store. The cover artwork reminds me of something you’d expect to see in Warhammer: 40,000. It was detailed, exciting, different, and intriguing enough for me to decide it was worth $4.00 to go on a curiosity voyage.
The stories were all very fast paced and easy to fall into. I’d like to see more character development on Warlash. We get to know the villains a bit; but Warlash remains a bit of a mystery to me.
The artwork is solid throughout. I would have liked to see more detail during the “Cold Metal Mayhem” story. That’s born out of my love for tech and mech.
As a geek on a budget my take on Warlash: Cold Metal Mayhem is “What you see is what you get”. You’re getting three good stories for $4.00. There aren’t a lot of wasted pages with advertising filler. All the way around it’s well worth the price of admission.
