Some times, some information is a good thing. While The Gamekeeper #1 was a pretty decent story, it really didn’t set up much about the main character a.k.a. the Gamekeeper.

In this issue, Diggle and Singh introduce the Gamekeeper or, as he was called in the issue, Brock by introducing him as a man of few words who’s had a rough life and has a weird haircut and giant knifes out of his hands… Wait, I think that’s someone else. Seriously, what was shown of the character didn’t feel too original and simply wasn’t enough. And while the story of an attack against the compound/ farm he lived on was somewhat interesting, it lost steam at the end as I didn’t feel as I cared if Brock got revenge or not.

Diggle’s usually a good writer, Ritchie’s considered to be a pretty good director, and Singh’s art was very nice but The Gamekeeper #1 didn’t feel too original or interesting.

To discuss.
