durakken's Resurrection Man #3 - One Side or the Other review

Join the dark Side, Mitchell

The story doesn't go far in this one and in some senses it is just repeating what we already knew. So why then do i give it a 4 star it goes nowhere more or less, like so many other stories... Well because the information that we get this month is information we presumed from previous issues, but it still needed to be confirmed and it still needed to be spoken straight out for those that didn't get it in the first place.

Another thing is we get more information on the Body double's who keep changing from heroes to villains and back again in my mind. I can't tell. They seem to be bounty hunters that work for the company that this guy works for and were hired to bring him in whenever there is a problem or some such thing and interestingly they both have regeneration powers to offset the recklessness Mitchell employs against them since he can't "die"...and doesn't have memories.

I also like the surprise at the end. In the previous issue you had to be going back and forth with this guy is crazy and well it is DC so it's not like it's impossible... but even still you never expect him to have that just lying around even if it is true. It's a nice surprise ending that leaves you wanting more.

    The Good: Ok, whatever crazy non-place Resurrection Man ends up in is just about the coolest thing ever. The sky is all sorts of weird shades of color, and the empty badlands type scenery is lit tered with chalk outlines. It's creepy and interesting enough on its own, AND THEN 'IT' SHOWS UP. 'It' being..... actually I still don't have a clue what 'it' is, though I have a nagging suspicion that 'it' is supposed to be Lucifer? God, I have no freaking idea. But the sheer degree of vagueness is wha...

    This issue falls into the same trap as the previous one.  It tries to take a more serious look at things like death and life, and partially succeeds on this front, but when it starts focusing too much on the Body Doubles it thereafter becomes difficult to take seriously.  The showdown between Mitch and the otherworldly power is well handled but everything else is not.  The conflict with the Body Doubles might belong better in a different title where the tone is meant to be more comedic but here ...
