Verdict Guileless and imaginative, this Gift will nonetheless be an acquired taste for most readers. Optional but recommended to those who value how the medium can be used to tell personal and elliptical stories. Some violent and disturbing content.-J. Osicki, Saint John Free P.L., NB

The story is ... abstract? Symbolic? Impressionistic? Weird? I’m going with weird, but Pop Gun War can certainly be viewed as a commentary on urban life and the struggle to stay human in a dehumanizing environment. Or it can be viewed as an urban Wizard of Oz. Or as an allegory of control. Or of freedom. Or it can be appreciated as a weird story. Weird but interesting, in sort of a weird way. Make of it what you will. All I can say is that I enjoyed it. Pop Gun War is creative, imaginative, and very different.
In a very unusual city (called The City), there are a very different group of people. A young boy named Sinclair finds a pair of discarded wings and uses them to fly. His sister Emily is in a rock band. There's a down on his luck guy named Addison, and a floating goldfish with glasses named Percy. There are others and they come and go in the series of stories here.
It's hard to describe this comic. The stories take place in a city like we know, but there are fantastical elements also which remind me about things like Little Nemo and Oz. There is wonder and sadness, compassion and anger. There is a story about Emily's band being pursued by someone who wants to make them famous, and one about the children of the city being taken and mesmerized. The stories are strange and wonderful as is the art. There are characters in bow ties and top hats. The city is grimy and dirty and somehow magical.
