It's impossible to not jump for joy when a new issue of Edward Scissorhands is released so quickly after the last. From IDW Publishing, written by Kate Leth, with art by Drew Rausch, Edward Scissorhands #7 continues with "Whole Again: Part 2." When we left off with the last issue we had met Dr. Wells, whose career is to fix the less fortunate. When Edward sees this, he of course is intrigued by the concept of her possibly being able to help him. Issue #7 focuses on the campaign that Edward's friends put together to get him on Dr. Wells show. It's no surprise that he's invited, but Megs feels hesitant towards the whole thing. Can you blame her?
I think there are so many reasons why people love the character of Edward Scissorhands. It's not just because he's got scissors for hands, it's because despite all he's gone through, despite being trapped in a house alone for most of his life, he's still a kind loving being. With that said, it would be hard to imagine him without his unique quality. So as a reader, I'm definitely in the same mind set as Megs. Sure, his life would change for the better in some ways, but now that everyone has accepted him for who he is…does it really matter? I do applaud the creative team for taking the book in this direction because it's an issue that would always be wondered about or discussed if it wasn't addressed.
Kate Leth continues to show her Edward Scissorhands knowledge with a few nods to the movie in this issue. I won't spoil them all, but I will bring up the scene where Edward pokes his friends bed and is relieved when water doesn't come spouting out of it. Whenever I manage to save up enough money to get my own house, I'm going to politely ask Drew Rausch to come over and use an entire room as a canvas for his amazing art style. Together, the duo continues to impress me with this comic. I can't wait to see how things end up with this storyline, but I will somehow try and be patient until issue #8! Be sure to pick up Edward Scissorhands #7 from your local comic book store.
