The Cover Alone Is Reason Enough to Pick This Up 0

Welcome to the world of Flashpoint where we can experience and explore alternate versions of the characters we know.The GoodI have to begin with the cover. It's important to have a great cover and I often tend to forget to mention them. With a comic focusing on the circus life of the Flying Graysons and Deadman, it makes perfect sense to have a circus poster themed cover. And it looks pretty dang cool, as well.With these Flashpoint tie-ins, we're seeing what happened to the other characters in t...

A Surprisingly Fun Issue 0

Again, I gotta agree with G-Man's review for this issue, the cover alone is absolutely gorgeous. I'm so tempted to get it blown up and turned into a real poster for my room.  Chiff Chiang has outdone himself I'm looking forward to picking up the title for the remaining 2 issues... but not for his covers alone.  JT Krul is a polarizing writer (from his great Teen Titans run to his derided Arsenal series), but here he brings his A-game.  If you've been reading Brightest Day, much of the Deadman s...

Decent Writing, Breathtaking Art 0

One of the more interesting aspects of the Flashpoint event has been just how closely the various writers and artists have stuck to both the traditional aspects of their various characters and to the overall plot of the Atlantis-Themyscira war. JT Krul and Mikel Janin's Deadman series, for example, offers both radically different versions of their spotlight characters and a side-story to the larger conflict that is still directly affected by it. The end result is a story that, thus far, feels ve...

Deadman and the Flying Graysons #1 0

With his parents still alive and well, Dick Grayson, now an adult, never became Robin and is still part of a traveling circus show, with its star, Deadman.  This is one of the mini series that really interested me right off the bat, however, it really didn't live up to my expectations.  For the most part, I like J.T. Krul, most recently his Teen Titans book is doing great, so I don't know what happened here. I may be in the minority but I was so uninterested by this. What each Flashpoint tie in ...

Strangely satisfying 0

Color me surprised. I really didn't know what to expect from this book but was drawn by it's unusual concept and very catchy cover. I'm happy to say this is a fun issue that not only is entertaining on it's own merit, but actually does add a little depth to the entire world of Flashpoint.  J.T. Krul writes this story of a traveling circus trapped in Europe and unable to get back to the United States due the war raging between the Amazons and the Atlanteans. Krul puts together some great charact...

Life is a Circus 0

Story/Writing Deadman and the Flying Graysons are the star performers at Haley's Circus, which is traveling from town to town throughout eastern Europe in flight from the Amazons and Atlanteans who have submerged and decimated the west. The story is essentially about the importance of union and cohesion between family and friends, especially in the midst of trying times, and a criticism of solipsism and arrogance. But it also offers some very interesting parallels between the relationships of De...
