Just don't call him Mary Sue....

Rated T.

This week by request, and a good month late, I reviewed Tommythehitman's Sharpshot series. Sharpshot is an original character created for the DC Corrupted series. He's a smart @ss shooter with questionable moral. Pretty basic I suppose. He's consistently written though, and fairly entertaining.

To fully understand Sharpshot, you have to read Corrupted, and War of the Worlds #1. So after the events of those stories, Sharshot finds himself adrift in the mutiverse, and looking for a nice homey dimension to crash in. After a few hit and misses, he lands in the Psyco-verse.


Good: Tommy's writing is fun and enjoyable. Sharpshot is a fun character. Chapters are short and punching, which is great if you want something light to read.

Bad: The story bounces backward and forward in time. This made my slightly confused at times, and hurt the flow of the story. The end of chapter 6 does not connect well to the start of 7.


Due to the occasionally confusing nature of the narrative, I give this series three and a half stars.

Further reading:

Sharpshots origins are here. Corrupted the library

His next appearance is here. War of the Worlds #1

The Sharpshot series can be found here Sharpshot's Library of Pain, Mayhem and Bullets!

Hopefully I can actually write a series instead of getting bored easily. Love Sharpshot!

@guardiandevil83: Why don't you ask Spidey if you can write a series set in the same universe?

I've been considering Sharpshot for awhile, but didn't know where to start, and didn't want to search out the links at the time. Thanks for compiling them. Now I have a place to start. I will probably read these at work, between calls. Us dispatchers need something to do in the downtime. :)
