    Essentially, in this issue nobody acts with an ounce of common sense, a key survival trait in the regular world little less the criminal one. The characters basically feel interchangeable; the only thing that distinguishes John from the others is his big right hand. You care little for any of them for that reason. Also, when the script realizes it has nothing to say, a host of goons appear and we jump into an action sequence. I still like the art somewhat, but it's not enough to salvage the near incoherent mess this book has become. The characters in a crime story have to be cunning and have smarts; Even with their fatal flaws and violent behavior, there has to be something in them that the audience can relate to. The only thing John "The Hand" Smith has possessed in Dock Walloper is blind luck. That kind of luck runs out eventually. I have no plans to be there when it does. Read Full Review
