The second DC book I'll be reading this week? None other than Grifter! If you didn't know Grifter had a comic book you apparently aren't the only one, as Grifter #1 was unfortunately on the low end of September's DC comic sales... Yet Flash #1 was a top seller... That just goes to show that people in general have no taste.
What Happened: Grifter manages to convince his girlfriend to meet him at a diner so he can try to explain what happened to him what with all of the alien weirdness last issue. Before he can explain too much a cop walks in and Grifter can hear his thoughts, meaning the cops was one of the weird aliens after him. Grifter ultimately manages to defeat the possessed cop, but in doing so freaks out his girlfriend who doesn't want to see him anymore. Grifter takes off and ends up being confronted by his brother, a member of the army. Grifter manages to jam his brother's gun before taking off, with his brother hot on his heels.
The Good: Much like Deathstroke #2, this was another fast moving DC book. The cliffhanger was strong. We learn a bit more about Grifter's past.
The Bad: We still don't know what's up with the weird aliens/whatever the hell they are that are possessing people. Apparently they're called Daemonites, but I only know that from the cover of this issue, as that name was never mentioned inside this issue. The reveal that Grifter used to work Black Ops for the military was tossed out with no fanfare at all. That seems sort of important to be revealed in such an offhanded sort of way.
The Verdict: This was one of those perfectly acceptable comic books I'll sometimes mention. I mean it wasn't great, it wasn't horrible. I probably won't remember it when I wake up tomorrow. It was simply okay. I will say that I'm a bit miffed that the term Daemonite was never used in this issue. I mean if THAT is the name of this big threat that has turned Grifter's life inside out, shouldn't that name show up SOMEWHERE?
Score: 7 out of 10.“You bring a fist to a gunfight? How human of you.” What the HELL does that even mean?!?
