Father's Day #1
Writer: Mike Richardson
Art: Gabriel Guzman
This series got some buzz from Dark Horse's PR office, and it's justified... not just because the boss—Dark Horse publisher Mike Richardson—wrote the story and script.
The tale being told here isn't especially unique. A former world-class killer (be he a criminal or a spy) retreats to a life of seclusion looking to escape his past only to be dragged back into his old life.
This is going to get compared to History of Violence quite a bit. There's even a fight in a diner. However, the catalyst for the action this time is where this book starts to traverse an untrodden path. Once the main character's long-lost daughter shows up on his doorstep, the action starts and never stops until the final page. It's a very quick read, and lays enough character development that I want to see what happens next in this series.
I'm still trying to figure out what the daughter does with the spoon on the next-to-last page. I think the not-knowing is the intriguing part.
