‘Rorschach #3’ (review)

Written by Tom King
Art by Jorge Fornes
Published by DC Comics

 

This has been a really cool series thus far.

It could have been a disaster, but it has been quite the opposite.

Writer Tom King is coming up with some amazing scripts that have been beautifully illustrated by Jorge Fornes. The result of their collaboration is a completely unique book that really has a lot on it’s mind.

In this issue, we find out exactly who it is we are dealing with, meaning we find out a major secret here.

I won’t spoil it, but suffice it to say, it changes the course of the entire series. From the very first page, you can see that this is a landmark issue.

The focus of this story is the character of the “Kid.”

We get to see how she was an innocent child that was changed by the events in the original series. We get to see the progression of her psychosis. It is incredibly well handled and respectful and you can see that King really has done his homework on this script.

We get to see her initial meeting with this version of Rorschach.

We get to see all of the events that lead up to her attempted assassination of a presidential candidate. There is a bit of horror in this script as we see that her intentions are to save the world and the people in it.

There is a lot revealed in this particular issue. There is also a lot of new questions that are raised.

King writes a fascinating script that just seems to get deeper and more intricate with each new issue. Jorge Fornes has really come into his own as an artist on this series as well. The images he conjures are truly something else.

Well done indeed.

RATING: A
