"-- Once the genie's out of the bottle..."

I have to start off by saying I absolutely love this cover, every pulp crime novel cover.  The Smoking gun is a very nice touch, but I want to point out how Dick Grayson almost becomes the second Robin in this cover, cold calculated face of a killer with a gun in both hands.  By foreshadowing the Jason Todd look, the ending makes a lot of sense, one door closes for another to open if you will.

I do think this mini series could of stretched to four issues before the sequel, but I am not complaining, a good crime story is a good crime story.  Thrillkiller had betrayal, a love triangle, a lot of deaths and a "The Good Guy(s)" sticking it to "The Bad Guys".

I look forward to the sequel with the new dynamic in this Elseworlds, Gotham will always have its "Bat" protector, no matter if it is a male of female and I think that is what I like most about Thrillkiller, the symbol is bigger then the person.

Cheers

    The End of an Era 0

    The previous two issues of Thrillkiller got good reviews from me, and I was quick to point out that this 1960's Gotham City has more in common with Raymond Chandler than Adam West. With that praise, those who have been reading the reviews for this series may wonder why the star rating has declined. The answer is that this should have been longer. Howard Chaykin and Dan Brereton present us with a very compelling world with great characters. Unfortunately, my complaint is that this series ends too...
