Title: Pearl by Bendis
Post by: Jeff on October 30, 2018, 03:00:07 PM
I know this isn't a Vertigo title but I didn't want to put it in the Heroes forum and seemed to fit more here.


Pearl #1 - Another Bendis creator title,. but now with a DC smell  ;D Didn't hit for me. I'm out. Probably take 13 months to get 4 issues out anyway ... Hahaha... ZING!!


I really just wanted to ask what about it didn't hit for ya, Perry.  I've got it in my Wish List but haven't pulled the trigger.  Do you think it will hit for me or should I steer clear?

Not sure. Just wasn't what I was looking for I guess. Subject matter was interesting (tattood Yakuza assassin), but I don't know, it just didn't hit for me. I didn't even care for the art, which is strange becuase I usually like Gaydos. But ya know how it is, somethings just don't do it for ya. I certainly can't say there was anything in particular that would make me say that you should avoid it though.
Give it a shot and if you don't, for some reason ... like me, enjoy the very first issue, then walk away. But they have three issues out now, so maybe you can try the first three and end up liking it.

But try a free issue of Manhunter first. I mean you already paid for the year at DCU, at least try that title
 ;D :D ;)

I'm laughing so hard right now.  I LITERALLY just posted in another thread that you talked me into it.   :D

Sweet. And just like I said above, about Pearl, if you don't enjoy the first issue of Manhunter, you probably will not like the rest. At least you won't have to spend a lot of time reading three or so issues to see if you like it
 ;D
I only say that because I was so hooked after issue #1 and I that issue is a good barometer for the entire series as far as tone goes ... although I don't think the humor aspect comes in quite that early. But maybe. Damn, I JUST read issue one not long ago and I have already forgotten when this one particular character makes his ... or her  ;) ... appearance

But hey, if you do try Pearl, make sure you let us know whatcha thought
