Bullets vs. Arrows 0

(No Spoilers)There’s been a lot of changes announced for the titles of the New DCU 52 but for this book we get a change in artist after just three issues with the launching creative team. Although I will miss CAFU’s art, it’s awesome that his replacement is Wildstorm veteran artist Scott Clark. I haven’t seen his art in ages and his style brings back good memories for me from the old Image Comics days.This was definitely the most action-packed issue of the series so far. From the moment Grifter ...

Grifter # 4 0

Crossing over so soon? Well we have to ensure the Wildstorm Universe is now the DC Universe lets not get it twisted. Green Arrow guest stars and so far I have to say this is the best issue since the 1st issue. However here is my problem, I would prefer to see the book stand on it's own. Rather than hey Green Arrow is around the corner. Bruce Wayne is up the street, and Superman is a block and a half from my house. Now being a ongoing title it's important that a book stands on it's own that Grift...

Grifter #4 0

Art - The line art is clean enough, but his proportions are all wrong. This is something that a life art class could probably fix fairly quickly. I wonder if he went to college or some other route. I'd say some other route because you probably wouldn't get these out of whack proportions otherwise. The colorist or inker is inconsistent, messing up the over all style of the colors. The fact that the colorist doesn't work with this belies the stubbornness and/or the skill of the colorist.Story - Th...

This Week, on Grifter... 1

The Good: Grifter himself is very well positioned on this cover, and the buildings look excellent, and everything but Green Arrow himself on the cover is pretty much well drawn and well laid our. Scott Clark is a surprisingly good successor to CAFU. There's nothing quite the same as CAFU, and I normally like Scott Clark's art for entirely different reasons; but somehow the art manages to capture the same 'primetime action drama' feel that CAFU's artwork was so perfect at. Grifter is just so damn...

Yeah, I Think I Would Take Bullets Over Arrows Still 0

Grifter continues strong without missing a step despite a rather random guest appearance by one of DC's top heroes. It's an issue that picks up the pace and shows that it can do action as well as the best of them when it wants to as Green Arrow complicates Grifter's plans against the Daemonites.While I have to give credit to DC for not going the typical route of having Batman guest appear, I really do wonder why Green Arrow was chosen for this. Did DC originally think the new Oliver Queen would ...

Stay on my bow 0

Continuing with Grifter's search for answers, he ends up in Seattle and looking for Oliver Queen.  When he gets to meet him it is in the hero's alter ego of Green Arrow.  This sets up one of the first hero versus hero stories of the new 52 but unlike some of the others (for instance the one that set up the Justice League) this one offers little to move along the plot.  In a sense then this is all about the action and in so doing this issue depends on the pacing and the visuals more so than anyth...
