Greyshirt: Indigo Sunset Reviews
Excelente tomo de punta a punta avanzando en el tiempo haciendo gala de las infinitas posibilidades de mezclar dibujo y narración, una pequeña mini joya casi desapercibida.
Rick Veitch continues the homage to Eisner's Spirit which he co-created with Alan Moore, keeping the same sense of formal playfulness and willingness to experiment. But he also takes the opportunity of a larger canvas than the Tomorrow Stories anthology afforded to gradually tie all the strands together, building an origin story for the masked vigilante and his neo-noir hometown of Indigo City which come together in a present day payoff. It wouldn't be right to call it a solo outing, mind - Veitch is joined by guests as impressive as John Severin, David Lloyd and Frank Cho on art (plus Dave Gibbons, who sadly scripts but does not draw, which always seems a terrible waste). As an added bonus, Veitch would seem to be the only man on Earth who hates hack photocopier and charlatan Roy Lichtenstein even more than I do, and finds entertaining ways to integrate that loathing into the story. If I have a complaint, it regards the faux-newspaper sections which serve as backmatter; they do a good job of building an even more thorough sense of Indigo as a living city, foreshadowing coming developments and providing connective tissue that can thus be left out of the comics themselves. And the spoof newspaper cartoons are a delight. But the news articles, as is so often the case when fiction attempts this trick, read like no newspaper on Earth. How do people get to be professional writers without ever apparently having read a newspaper, or being able to pastiche the fairly easy style if they have?
Some very funny items, some very serious. It goes to both extremes
it is the 80s and criminals are looking to the past for inspirational-theme, thus, gangsters are reborn. corruption fear and greed run the streets of indigo city when one gangster finds reason to join the other side: science heroes. now, acting as a vigilante approved by the city mayor, the protagonist is doing all they can to undo the lifestyle that is favored and idolized, but his best friend is in the way...that concept alone made this a good read. what made it great was the delivery. i loved the intermissions between each comic story: indigo city newspaper headlines, the ask the doc columns, ridiculous ads, and even comic strips. what makes it even better is the fact the all the ads headlines and columns were interwoven into the story arcpick it up and enjoy!
Uneven and slightly surreal attempt at a character that is a clone/homage/ rip-off/take your pick of Will Eisner's Spirit.Like the hero's design, it's a very cool, pulp influenced look, and there are some decent stories, but it all gives you the impression of somebody trying too hard to be clever and ends up feeling a bit unsatisfying.
Really clever stuff, really well done. Can be read in small installments, but it definitely builds up to a larger story.
Stylish, cool, Greyshirt was an excellent part of America's Best. this story is a perfect example
