I had really high hopes for the solo Grifter book. I always really liked the character and felt that he could have a decent solo title. Unfortunately, I don’t know if this is the right direction to take his character in. Like many of the Dc books during the relaunch, the plot is paint-by-numbers in its simplicity. You can see where the book is going from the opening panels. The twist is just that in name only. That’s not to say it’s bad, just not all that I wanted. There is a mystery here that is relatively interesting and will keep me around for at least the opening arc. The art is done by the always good Cafu. The pencils are tight and convey a good range of emotions. I’m not sure this book will last very long but it should make for at least one decent story.
