Grifter #14 - Jumpers Review

Grifter #14 Review

Cover - 4/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Color/Ink - 4/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening?

Layout - 3/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 3/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?


Verdict - 3.3

- What I think: Kinda sad when a cover gets that highest score of an issue. The are of the issue was just OK, nothing special and really didn't fit Grifter, and the Stormwatch characters, don't get me started on how bad Engineer looked. The entire issue jumps around and is really not easy to keep track of. Also most of the writing is done as Grifter's monologue, while okay at times, an issue that contains 90% monologue gets tedious. Then again the entire issue could have never been printed and you would miss nothing. It's a filler issue plain and simple. After Grifter escaped The Eye of the Storm he infected their computer systems. Soon he and Midnighter are caught up in an endless Jump sequence going from one location to another trying to kill each other. The final Jump puts Midnighter back on the Eye while out of spite the Eye sends Grifter to the Suicide Squad's base of operations. Hopefully the next issue is better and gives a fitting send off to the series. It's sad when DC knows they are canceling a series so many issue ahead of time and just does a disservice to their characters like this.
