Grifter continues his debut in the DCU in this fast-paced issue that was over a little too quickly for my tastes but had some great action in it.
This comic is reading a lot like a T.V. show to me. There’s a sense that they’re really going for a real world feel here but of course we’re getting supernatural elements thrown in as well. I like the opening scene in the diner but when I found myself getting to the end of the issue I felt maybe it could’ve been shortened a bit. But I guess that’s because I’m so anxious to see more about this character I really don’t want the issue to end period.
Another Wildstorm character makes his debut in the DCU and this time it’s my main man, Grifter! It’s been 14 years since Grifter last had a solo title so for this fan this has been a long time coming.
The first thing to point out here that I think will grab people’s attention is that this Grifter title lends itself more to the feel of titles like Wildcats Vol. 2 and Wildcats: Version 3.0. Those two titles came out during a time when Wildstorm was going for a more real world feel than a superhero feel. Those incarnations of the Wildcats books were also the most well-received amongst comic fans. I can safely say that fans of those two Wildcats titles will really dig this book.
