Sometimes you run into the oddest things while reviewing comics. Take DC Comics slash Craftsman Tools promotional comic Craftsman Bolt on System Saves The Justice League, starring the Craftsman Tool Guy as the Technician aka Bruce Willis in Lock On With A Vengeance.

A New Old Comic Book Addict Oddities Review

Some comics, be it physical or digital, defies description. Oddities that make no sense yet somehow existed... DC Comics partnership with Craftsman tools during the New 52 era is one of those that spawned this digital comic... Craftsman Bolt on System Saves The Justice League.

By Joshua Williamson and Christian Duce. Basically the Craftsnans Tool Guy, nicknamed the Technician by the Justice League, lives out of Justice League headquarters (New 52 era watchtower) and is on call to do all their tool time repair stuff for all their fix it needs. One day Justice League HQ comes under siege by a random group of nobodies called The Key, while the League is away fighting The Royal Flush Gang, with only the Technician left to defend Justice League HQ. He decides to go Bruce Willis on The Key, and uses his craftsman drill with lock on system attachments to defeat the key. The end.

For a free promotional to sell power tools it's a pretty decent comic. Sure the story is hokey as all heck, but once you accept that it's a decent little mindless romp. Drawn well, written OK, again it's endless fun once you accept the weirdness of the Craftsman Tool Guy living in Justice League HQ and doing a non violent Die Hard stand on supposed super villains to save the day... a 4 out of 5. Might still be free digitally at places like Comixology, but considering they recently did some removing of free stuff from their free section of their app to get ready for a new year of freebies it might not be available anymore... good luck if your out searching for it, and stay tuned.
