A broken mirror gets you seven years of bad luck. Salt was thought to have the same preservative effect on friendship as it had on food, so spilling it was a bad omen. We all know a black cat crossing your path is bad luck, but did you know an upside-down horseshoe represents good fortune spilling out on the ground? Charlene "Chuck" Manchester hires out her bad luck, providing disaster where someone else can profit. While her enemies rally to take her down, Chuck sees a way out with her new heiress sidekick. But sometimes her own bad luck is not enough, and Chuck needs to really tempt fate to pay the rent . . .

    Bad Luck Chuck's blocky art style mixed with a bit of grit is so intriguing that it could probably support the entire story without any dialogue, but it'd be a shame to do so since you'd miss out on learning so much about Chuck's character. Read Full Review

    Issue 2 of Bad Luck Chuck is just as enthralling as the first. It hasn't let up on the pace of the story and it weaves layers of nuance and intrigue into the world of Bad Luck for hire. Jump on this book before it gets too far ahead! Read Full Review

    I like the general premise and the setup as we have it so far and this issue is a kind of breather, which is a surprise fro a second installment. But it works with the quirky nature of things and I'm still very interested in seeing how it all unfolds since it looks like Chuck really just may be capable of anything. Read Full Review

    Strong art is a definite highpoint, but multiple flashbacks in "Bad Luck Chuck" #2 keep us detached from the more compelling present-tense story. Read Full Review
