Happy! #2

by lucstclair on October 28, 2012

Nick’s public enemy #1 in hospital garbs & a little blue horse and his evening’s about to get even more interesting when he joins a high stakes poker game. But with a little blue horse cheating for you, it’s in the bag!

The Team

Written by Grant Morrison (Batman : Incorporated, The Filth, Superman Action Comics Vol. 1 : Superman & The Men Of Steel), illustrated by Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, The Boys, New Warriors) & coloured by Richard P. Clark. Published by Image Comics.

The Pros & Cons

Its crooked cops & mafia goons time & more “C” words than Deadwood, as Nick Sax violently takes on a bunch of hoodlums dressed like hospital staff who want to inflict genital harm upon him. So far this mini series isn’t what it’s cracked up to be, I did enjoy the poker game part & Santa’s gift wrapping moment were particularly disturbing. Like Nick Sax’s life, this series should be kicking my ass all over, you’d think from a creative giant like Grant Morrison at the helm, I’d be happier than a pig in a blanket by now, but sadly it isn’t so. Now the blame doesn’t fall on Darick Robertson’s shoulders, he does what he can with the material he’s given and it looks fantastic.

The Outcome

With two more issues on the way, I’m hopeful the series will eventually pick up.
