Review: Knight and Squire #2

Posted by inferiorego (27761 posts) - - Show Bio
Knight and Squire have a playful romp through the English countryside only to end up solving a mystery at Stone Henge.
 

The Good

I'm REALLY conflicted about this book. Overall, it's a lot of fun, has a good spirit, and the art fits so well with the writing. It is humorous, but I never laughed out loud or chuckled. It has a very British sense of humor about it. I do really love the fact that books are coming out based on these little sub-worlds Grant Morrison set up in his Batman run. It's a nice expansion, and I'm glad someone took the reigns of it, even if I don't personally like it.
 

The Bad

I'm usually a fan of the Brit-wit, but this was a bit tongue-in-cheek for me. It came off a tad campy, and most of all, I really don't like Knight and Squire. I felt like I was watching an episode of the Batman show from the 60s. It's not a bad book. It's pretty good overall, but it's definitely not my bag.
 

The Verdict 3/5 Recommend

Originally, I had this book rated at a 2 simply because I really didn't like it. But aside from my personal problems with it, it is a very solid book. The writing and art are great, and it's fun, but it's all about whether or not you like these two characters. I didn't read the first issue, but I had no trouble following this issue. It stands on it's own pretty well, so feel free to jump in now!

"I didn't like it, but it was good"  
That's what I said about The Illusionist!

I have issue 1 that I still need to read. What I have read of them before I wasn't overwhelmed. Is this an ongoing? Would it have the strength for it?

It's a 6 issue mini-series.

@inferiorego: Ok. That makes more sense. As I said, I have issue #1 just haven't been compelled to read it just yet.

How can you give this a 3 and recommed it?  It's garbage.   
 
What's even crazier is that GL: Emerald Warriors gets a 4 and it's not recommened?  GLEW is like one of the best books on the shelf. 
 
To each his own then.

I loved GLEW this week and would have recommended the poop out of it.
It got a recommendation because it is a very well put together book, but it's really all about whether or not you like the characters. It's a different style of book than most of us are accustomed to.

I remember seeing issue #1 of this and LOLing, seemed like something Rob Liefeld would have done back in the 90's...
