Some Hopes

Checkmate (Volume 2) #2
Written by Greg Rucka
Art by Jesus Saiz
Cover by Lee Bermejo

Another well done issue by Rucka and company. I am really digging the art. Maybe I will check out some other stuff Saiz has done. The cover is also just goregous. I think they should include a character list at the beginning of every issue like they did last issue. It can get confusing who is who with all the code names flying around. I loved the mentions of things currently going on around the DCU. Great use of Continuity! I also am loving the debate between the characters on weather it is acceptable to kill to stop crime. This mirrors the debate between comic fans themselves about whether heroes should kill. I see both Alan Scott and Sasha’s points so I am completely neutral in the debate. Sasha and Mr. Terrific’s relationship came as a surprise. I hope this doesn’t mean her love for Batman is totally gone. I hope that people won’t forget that Sasha is originally a Batman character and I hope Rucka will deal with that in this series at some point. Solid Issue.
