I had been putting this off for as long as I could but I broke down last night and read it before bed. Based on everyone's reviews I thought this would suck really bad but I actually didn't mind it so much. Yes it was very cliche, and the main character is actually quite boring, but I liked some of the things that were done in this book. I liked the 'flash-forward' as others have refered to it as and I think that last page was definitely an interesting development. Finding out how it gets to that point actually made me want to stick this out for a couple more issues but after sitting down and thinking about it I decided i'd be avoiding it. Pretty standard mediocre art, nothing awful, just not anything special either.
The main reason why I'll drop this I decided is bc of the whole priest molestation thing. Yes pedophilia is fucking evil and I love seeing pedophiles get what they deserve, but using the Catholic church as the scapegoat for this has been so much and really does a disservice to all the priests who are actually good people. Yes there are bad priests, but there are bad people in every single walk of life. There are pedophile teachers, firemen, politicians, etc. Using the Catholic church as the scapegoat here is a cheap way to do it and it sort of pisses me off.
Another reason I'll drop this is I just have way too many books on my pull list already to bother with a medicore DC book.
