    Point Blank is a 2004 comics volume focused on ex Black Ops soldier Cole Cash, aka The Grifter, who in the process of finding out who shot his former boss, John Lynch, goes up against Tao, a villain Alan Moore introduced in his run on WildCATs, out of the Wildstorm Universe, none of which I knew anything about The story is dark noir, and well written by Brubaker, but not up to the level of his most recent work I might have rated this higher, but I am not a particular fan of the art by Colin Wi Point Blank is a 2004 comics volume focused on ex Black Ops soldier Cole Cash, aka The Grifter, who in the process of finding out who shot his former boss, John Lynch, goes up against Tao, a villain Alan Moore introduced in his run on WildCATs, out of the Wildstorm Universe, none of which I knew anything about The story is dark noir, and well written by Brubaker, but not up to the level of his most recent work I might have rated this higher, but I am not a particular fan of the art by Colin Wilson I read this because 1 Brubaker, he s the best, and 2 I heard it was a prequel to Brubaker s Sleeper series, which I enjoyed Oh, boy, now I get to review Sleeper

    I don t know that I d consider this the prequel to Sleeper which is one of the best comics Wildstorm ever made , it stangentially related with a loose introduction to the characters That being said, this is a good story on its own Grifter has been helping his old war buddy, John Lynch with some spy work when he comes across Lynch after he s been shot in the head Now that he s in a coma, Cole Cash is out to find who did this to Lynch It eventually leads him to cross paths with Tao and I don t know that I d consider this the prequel to Sleeper which is one of the best comics Wildstorm ever made , it stangentially related with a loose introduction to the characters That being said, this is a good story on its own Grifter has been helping his old war buddy, John Lynch with some spy work when he comes across Lynch after he s been shot in the head Now that he s in a coma, Cole Cash is out to find who did this to Lynch It eventually leads him to cross paths with Tao and Holden Carter the star of Sleeper Tao is by far the best villain of the Wildstorm universe DC would be smart to start using him heavily again

    Similar in tone to Criminal, but without as many characters that I care about Cole Cash, ex black ops is trying to investigate the attempted murder of John Lynch, his former commander Brubaker described the story as a violent little M bius strip , and it certainly is The ending makes a few thingsclear, and prompts a re read I understand that this leads in neatly to Sleeper, which I haven t read yet.


  5. Morgan Morgan says:

    Already started reading Sleeper which is already far better, this was an okay intro though I m not really familiar with any of these characters or the Windstorm universe, so that made this book hard to follow for me I kind of know about Wild C.A.T.s because of a long lost 90s cartoon, but this ain t the carton show I watched LOL Manly reading this because of Brubaker s name.

    The elevator pitch for this book is interesting What if you took an old blackout drinking noir story where the hero has to piece together the crime, but instead of drinking it was also tied to some super powered mind wiping shenanigans This may be a product of its time, but it seemed too mired in the Wildstorm universe even though Brubaker insists in the afterword that none of that matters to the story and he is right, but it detracts , and too one note.This is a book about Cole Cash, aka Gri The elevator pitch for this book is interesting What if you took an old blackout drinking noir story where the hero has to piece together the crime, but instead of drinking it was also tied to some super powered mind wiping shenanigans This may be a product of its time, but it seemed too mired in the Wildstorm universe even though Brubaker insists in the afterword that none of that matters to the story and he is right, but it detracts , and too one note.This is a book about Cole Cash, aka Grifter from Wild CATS, without his mask on, being a Phillip Marlowe type.This is not a Sleeper story It does feature that character at the end and may give some small bit of extra context to his story, but for completists only

    Point Blank may lack the collection of characters to care for that Brubaker s other work features, it s still a thrilling trip around the block in a fugue of insanity.


  9. Robert Solanovic Robert Solanovic says:

    Although the author claims otherwise, you really need to know about the characters in this comic book If you don t, it just doesn t work and you simply don t care what happens to them.

    Good Ed Brubaker writing In general the art is good, but I m not a fan of the style The story is sometimes confusing, but the good kind of confusing that resolves as you read because it was intentional by the creators.
