Can Jack Ryder and The Creeper co-exist? Gavin's gone crazy!!! The axeman cometh! A bizarre threat stalks the skyscrapers and back alleys of Gotham…and Batman faces it with the help of the Creeper!
I said in my review of The Creeper #1, that issue #2 is going to make or break it for me. While the first issue was a very fun read, I personally hated the attitudes of both Jack Ryder and The Creeper. Well, thankfully, I find them much more tolerable in issue #2, mind you, I still don't necessarily like either guy yet, but the story and art is so well done that I guess I don't have to like them, to enjoy this series. The direction of the story is basically being pushed in this issue and we get a closer look into the mindset of The Creeper, the question of weather he's a good guy or a bad guy also pop's up in this issue.
I wouldn't say that i'm extremely excited to continue this series, but i'm going to stick with it, I find it strangely interesting, and I really don't know why...maybe that's a good thing?
