Hor­rif­i­cal­ly vio­lent, emo­tion­al­ly detached, over con­densed and ulti­mate­ly unful­fill­ing. For­get­table Woman and Bird­man are pret­ty unen­gag­ing char­ac­ters. I was attract­ed to the con­cept of a super­hero set­ting with all the warts of real­i­ty — some­thing that the reboot­ed Bat­man films attempt in part but gloss over — but then it veers into out­landish non­sense any­way. I was half expect­ing Max Payne to be on Rorschach’s dia­log writ­ing team.

But then I sup­pose that’s why it’s a com­ic. For some rea­son sto­ries like this are inher­ent­ly more suit­able in com­ic format.

I was very impressed with the intro.
