The 1st issue is basically flawless. Best read in months, hands down. This feels like it was made to be a movie or TV series. Highly recommend picking up a copy and reading.

Dead Rabbit #1

By: Gerry Duggan, John McCrea
Released: Oct 3, 2018

Back in the '90s, DEAD RABBIT was a prolific Boston stick-up man and hoodlum, until he took down one last big score and disappeared. Nobody ever discovered the truth: he retired to be with the love of his life. Now he's back in the mask to save her, but no one-not his wife, the mafia, or the cops-is happy that he's out of retirement.

This was an awful story. The art was some of the worst that I've seen in weeks. My exposure to Mister Miracle before now was his time with the JLI and that is not what I got here. I assume this book would be enjoyable closer to Tom Kings fantastic Grayson run but it looks like it's closer to his mediocre Batman work. I would not recommend this story to anyone.

Raptor was completely seeley's creation not an element from a previous run, and you think its boring. You think Pigeon and Defacer are great!? As if more reason to dismiss you opinion was needed after giving this masterpiece a 4.0

Mechanical Mudd - Aug 12, 2017

No Raptor is a garbage rip off of Tiger from Grayson, and enjoyable characters in Nightwing are the Runoffs. As for King's Batman, I Am Gotham was a Masterpiece and I did enjoy I Am Bane, but I Am Suicide, Jokes and Riddles, that Rooftops thing, and even the Button sucked in my opinion. I think King has a lot going in this story like the possibility that everything is a lie created by the Apokoliptians to trick Mr. Miracle, but I still stand at 4/10 regardless.
