Donny has landed in hot water. Both literally and figuratively. The trail of his girlfriend's killer has led him into a dangerous conspiracy, and the cops now think he's a murderer himself. The only way out is to take a jump in the Pacific Ocean, but the mysterious assassin Spectros is going to make sure that the Southland Vigilante never comes up for air.

    This is a solid issue in a gritty and realistic vigilante story. Vigilante: Southland offers gritty realism in a field that's mostly extraordinary heroes. This issue progresses the plot and offers plenty of realistic action. Read Full Review

    Three issues down, and so far each one has topped the previous one. Thats about as good as it gets. Read Full Review

    Just like the first issue there is a lot of jumping around. It's really hard to have a clean, wellflowing narrative when scenery and characters change each panel so drastically.Which makes me sad because I think the plot is really interesting and have alot of components that could easily make it a great story. I'm guessing andhoping that some great tie in is coming our way. But I am fearful that there isnot. They are focusing on one detail (Dorrie's death and Spector's involvement)but the storyline is so choppy and confusing its hard to jump on board. Read Full Review

    Casagrande and Brusco's work gives this book the 2 star rating alone. Not sure what this book is really supposed to do but secure he copyright for the Vigilante concept again. DC should probably try a different take on the character, perhaps a return to the Greg Saunders incarnation. Read Full Review

    I mean, this is really painful. What a complete mess.Moritat inks a few pages, which makes the art look a little nicer, but theproblem with this book is not the gritty, dense artwork, but the storytelling.It just sucks. This thing needs to go back to the drawing board. Charactersneed to be named at least once every issue if you want the reader to know whothey are. Characters should not change their looks in the same issue or withina story arc, unless that is dictated by continuity. Captions can be used toexplain times, places, and internal monologue. There's just so much wrong withthis comic book. It's a chore to read. Read Full Review
