The Cape #1 – Mini Review

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

So I’ve heard of the TV show of the same name but never saw it before it was cancelled. I don’t know how much it may have had in common with the comic book but if the cancellation of the TV show is any sign I don’t see this book doing much better.

I will be honest, I didn’t like it. It starts out interesting enough with detectives trying to solve a murder but as we are introduced to the anti-hero it just goes downhill. I am not against a story about a bad guy but this one didn’t do anything for me, I felt no sympathy for the main character or any of the others for that matter.

The set-up is intriguing, a man who can fly with the help of a cape, and it could have gone a lot of places but chose to go nowhere good. Granted, it did contain the most creative way I have ever seen of getting the police off your back and that bit did make me chuckle but I won’t be picking this title up at the comic shop.
