Ahoy Captain Cats here and today I’m going to review the tenth issue of Unnatural but in a different way.
After reading this issue, a lot has happened to Leslie and company, and we also see more of Leslie’s mother backstory and how the issue ended was in again heartbreak, and we as the reader can feel her pain and want to protect her and hug her. While I read comics I usually listen to music and two songs came into play at the right moments in my reading of this issue and they were “Yes, The River Knows” by The Doors and “Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want” by The Smiths.
The first song by The Doors came in during the opening pages of the comic with Leslie, and the Albino was fighting for control and later into the comic when she asked a request that I won’t spoil. How the way the “Yes, The River Knows” plays into this part of the comic is in the lyrics, written by Robby Krieger and if you listen carefully it is beautiful but in a haunting way. An excellent example of this is:
Please believe me if you don’t need me
I’m going, but I need a little more time
I promised I would drown myself in mystic heated wine – Robby Krieger of The Doors
The other song by The Smiths came into play with Leslie’s mom and her back story. There was one part of the song that fit this section of the comic so well because it’s very accurate. Both Johnny Marr and Morrissey wrote the song, the lyrics were straightforward and to the point on how one person’s horrible life could change someone’s life if they were to walk in their shoes. An excellent example of this is:
Haven’t had a dream in a long time
See, the life I’ve had
Can make a good man bad
So once in my life
Let me get what I want
Lord knows, it would be the first time – Johnny Marr and Morrissey of The Smiths
With this, we are two issues away from the final issue of this series, and I can’t wait to see what is in store in issue 11.
