A New Beginning For Edward Scissorhands In # 6


With the first ARC's end last month, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next for Edward Scissorhands. From IDW Publishing, written by Kate Leth, with art by Drew Rausch, Edward Scissorhands #6, is the start of a new beginning for Edward. With the title, "Whole Again: Part 1," I felt quite positive as I flipped to the first page of the issue. The town interacts with Edward in an open, friendly, and loving way. After reading the issue, I continue to feel ecstatic about this comic. It's truly impossible for me to find anything to criticize.

We are exposed to a few different scenarios throughout, one of course being about Edward's new life, how everything is affecting Megs, and most interesting of all, Megs mother finding Kim's journal. I have been dying for a flashback that features Kim, and we finally get one! I'm not going to spoil it here for those of you who haven't read it yet. All I can say is, I want more! It's clear that Megs mother has some pretty intense past memories.

I want to talk about the storyline focusing on Edward. He discovers a TV show that features Dr. Wells, a plastic surgeon that fixes people and gives them a new beginning. So, let's all just take a moment to think back to the Edward Scissorhands movie. When he goes on that talk show, and the audience is given a chance to ask questions, a woman says that she has a friend that might be able to help him. The Dr. Wells plot seemed reminiscent of that, but I fear that this might actually happen. Just like Megs, I don't feel very trusting of the skeleton looking woman. However, I will say that it's a very interesting way to move the story forward.

Drew Rausch continues to impress me with his cartoon-y character designs and overall genius artistic ways. That, in combination with Leth's immense talents gives this book one hell of a creative team. I'm excited to see how things pan out moving forward.
