Titis A. Shires only recently released his masterpiece of comedic genre-bending gold last year. Despite being privately funded and creating the work almost completely solo, he has already managed to publish his 13th issue! For those of you unfamiliar with this indie darling, Flair Loops, I don’t want to spoil too much but suffice to say it is a seamless blend of wacky superhero antics, Car-Fu and teenage love drama all rolled into one. The main hero, Jake Sito, is top of his class by day, and king of an underground street racing circuit. The guys wanna be him, the girls wanna be with him, and everything in his life is going great! Until he loses his first race. Distraught over his loss, he makes a deal with the devil which gives him superhuman reflexes, but with one unfortunate side effect: he has to act as over-the-top as possible. Ridiculous stunt jump? He has to take it? Walls between him and his enemy? Oh you know he has to flip over them Matrix-style. And with the ladies? Well let’s just say Tuxedo Mask would tell him he’s being too dramatic. So with twelve stylized adventures already out and our hero being pushed to his absolute limit in the last one, how has Shires managed to capture our attention with the latest issue?
Well, by revealing that the protagonist is about to die.
