Rusty’s Reading List 2019 | July 1, 2019

This is just so good. Well, except the first story. To give some background on what happens later in the volume, they included an earlier story from Batman Chronicles that was also written by Greg Rucka, but the art really distracts. That’s okay, though, because once you get into Half A Life, the story and art work seamlessly.

It could be argued that the entire story, from page one on down, is a set-up for the last page. But wow… what a last page. I won’t say I shed a tear, but it wasn’t far off. Powerful, moving, compelling storytelling. That isn’t how it ‘should’ have ended. Thank you, Greg Rucka, for having the guts to end it this way.
