Grifter # 4

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 Grifter has proven that it has it's own universe within the DC Universe. So far as action story this is great story and great art work. What I like about this story is that Grifter comes through really bad ass, he's a very likeable character. He doesn't take crap he's just down to whatever it is necessary to win. Grifter Vs. Green Arrow scene is priceless. Very well executed, still though I find it sudden. This is great stuff, a lot bang for your buck. I rate this issue a 4.0 of 5.0 rating.

1=wack, 1.5=falling asleep, 2=below average, 2.5=pick it up a bit, 3= average, 3.5=dope, 4=good, 4.5=excellent, 5=classic

    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...

    (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 ...
