Outstanding review of a book that is best characterized as challenging. Although I consider it among my top five graphic books of all time, it is advanced reading that I tell non-, new or casual comics readers about, but never expect them to actually read it.
I was surprised that there was no comparison between Elektra Assassin and Dark Knight Returns. Also another book that compares is MIND MGMT, which is thoroughly non-linear and where much of the information contributing to the story is literally in the margins.
Dark Knight Returns represents a greater departure in my mind from comic norms considering that one of the big two allowed such a radical take on one of their premier brands. Almost universally such experimentation is relegated to much lesser known characters such as Elektra. Another that comes to mind is the Nighthawk series by David F. Walker.
Very much looking forward to the review of Squadron Supreme. I hope you spend some time comparing to Watchmen.
Thanks! I love the Mind MGMT comparison, as that’s a personal favorite. If I didn’t mention Frank on Batman it’s probably from feeling like I’ve been doing that every ep lately 🙂 That Nighthawk series is so great, love the connection your making there as well.
And don’t worry, we definitely bring up Watchmen on next week’s Squadron Supreme chat!
