Lemire takes a break from Buddy’s struggle against the Rot here and gives us a look at the movie that Buddy starred in. The movie is a pretty obvious homage to ‘The Wrestler’, the director is called ‘Ryan Daranovsky’ and it’s about a washed-up ex-superhero with a drinking problem and issues connecting with his kid. All it’s missing is a relationship with a stripper. But those similarities were a plus more than a minus for me, and it meant for a really unique issue. John Paul Leon’s art was perfect for the bleak tone of the ‘movie’ and made it all seem very ‘real’ compared to the out-there style of Foreman. I also liked how Lemire didn’t just do the issue for the sake of it, but it’s appearance was part of the main story, with Cliff watching it on his smart-phone. In the end we only get half of the movie, and I’d certainly welcome another issue which shows us the rest of it sometime in the near future. Oh, and of course, it was cool how Buddy’s character in ‘Tights’ was named after the creators who really re-defined him as ‘Chas Grant’.
