Rorschach #3 Variant Cover
Verdict - 4.4

- It took me a few seconds to figure out the cover but once I did it makes total sense. We see Rorschach's boot crashing threw a door, with his signature mask features on the sole. I really like the art styling of this book, it gritty nature and dark tones fit Rorshach to a T. I'd have to say out of all of the Before Watchmen books this one has been the most consistent and a favorite of mine. This issue has Rorshach still hunting down the pimps and killers, but also shows his personal side by asking the waitress that helped him last issue out to dinner. With one issue left I can't wait to read the conclusion.
