Okay, Bendis is still pretty heavy into the silliness–he needs to do a comic about being a middle-aged comic book writer who decides he wants to be a woman, it would fit him–but it’s hard to complain when the ending has protagonist Scarlet shooting some cops in cold blood with a sniper rifle.
That commitment to being out there is something Bendis didn’t do the first issue and didn’t really do the second issue (we find out this issue about a bunch of torture we missed out on). Sure, Bendis is just taking a page from Ennis here….
But the Walt Disney Company is publishing a comic book advocating the murder of police officers.
No matter what–Secret Invasion, Siege, Jinx–one has to admire Bendis for getting this book out there from them… which doesn’t make it worth reading. Though Maleev does make it worth seeing.
Writer, Brian Michael Bendis; artist and colorist, Alex Maleev; letterer, Chris Eliopoulos; editor, Jennifer Grünwald; publisher, Icon.
