Welcome back to our new series in which we review the comics that we read every week. This week Seppin is going to be reviewing The Silencer #8 by Dan Abnett and art by Patrick Zircher.
The Silencer is one of the best new characters that DC has released in a long time. She is super likable and quite the badass.
For those that don’t know who Silencer is, she was an assassin for Leviathan. Leviathan is Talia al Ghul’s assassin network. When Talia died Silencer quit and was able to leave and start a family. That’s right, she’s a mom who has to fight killer assassins and keep her secret from her family. Why aren’t you reading this book yet?
This weeks issue is continuing the story in which Silencer is going after Talia to kill her so that she can leave her old life behind. Her husband and son spend the whole issue at Action Park, which is a theme park for Superman. It’s full of references and very fun. At the same time Silencer is getting closer to the last Lazarus pit to catch Talia and kill her. Only, she isn’t the only one going after Batman’s crazy ex. It ends on an interesting cliff hanger that you must read.
Overall, it is a wild book with an awesome main character.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
