Danger Club #3
Image Comics (July, 2012)WRITER: Landry Q. Walker ARTIST: Eric Jones COLORISTS: Michael “Rusty” Drake with Garry Black & Vegasday FLATS: Pannel Vaughn LETTERER/LOGOS: Jimmy Bentacourt PRODUCER: Javier Jose Diaz EDITOR: Branwyn Bigglestone
Moonlight (who I think I misnamed as Kid Vigilante last issue) brings his data to the President, and learns the shocking truth about what happened to the heroes. Meanwhile Kid Vigilante and The Magician leave Apollo at his temple while the other Danger Club members investigate an old villain HQ only to find a leftover trap!
What they got right: The mystery takes an interesting turn that keeps me interested in where it’s going. We also get the full effect of just how this is affecting the sidekicks.
What they got wrong: However, I still want to know more about these characters. They’re still not all that memorable, so when Gravity Girl flips out at the end I find it hard to care as much as I should. Maybe a miniseries or story arc that shows these characters before the incident and gives us a chance to connect with them would be a huge benefit to connecting to later stories.
Recommendation: As a purely event-driven story it isn’t bad and is at least worth checking out. I just want to care more about the heroes.
