Review: Grayson #10

July 31st, 2015

I'm a 35 year old Canadian living in Ontario. I read comics, I love to draw and I collect comic art. I also teach karate, play hockey, and am a dad to 3 girls! My comic book passion lies with Batman and his pals with Nightwing taking a very close #2 favourite position. I began collecting comic art in 2013 and I have several commissions done by Ken Lashley and an amazing Francis Manapul Batman. As well I have sold a few of my own creations!

Grayson is one of the most interesting stories in comics and we have all the angles covered for you here on ComiConverse!

If you haven’t been reading DC Comics Grayson, you should be!  You can check out the main reasons why in a previous article I wrote right here.  If you’re looking for a quick run down of what’s currently happening for Agent 37, look no further as I review for you Grayson #10.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

This month’s installment of Grayson features the usual team of Seeley and King writing, Janin providing art and Cox doing the colours.  Having the usual team together is a great thing because, as always, the book looks beautiful with eye popping panels and the type of witty dialogue and plot movement I’d expect from a book starring Dick Grayson.

This issue picks up immediately where the last one left off with Grayson fleeing a museum where he’s just lifted a green jewel from a Duchess, and knocked out his mission partner, Agent 1. The knocking out of his partner is done because, as revealed in the last issue, murders are trailing Grayson around on each of his assignments and made to look as if he is doing them. Grayson needs to separate from Agent 1 and gets orders to knock out his partner.

Helena Bertinelli, now Director of Spyral, tells Agent 1 to let the issue with Grayson go as she has a more pressing mission for him, but also because she is the one that told Grayson to knock him out!  Meanwhile, Grayson is meeting with the pickup for the jewel he just acquired, who turns out to be none other than Lex Luthor! Dick naturally puts two and two together and refuses to give the green jewel to Lex. Here is where we find out something very important during this interaction between Lex and Dick and that is that the hypnos technology that Spyral uses was created, designed, and modified by the criminal genius.  Lex uses this advantage to attempt to control Grayson, but the former boy wonder distracts Lex and then escapes.

Agent 37 decides he should be checking up on his partner, Agent 1, and tries to make contact with Batman who is still missing in action at this point leaving Grayson to forge his own path without the advice of his mentor.

That’s the quickest rundown of the issue I can give, but a few pictures and my words hardly do the book justice.  Seriously this is a title you want to be reading as it covers so many genres of literature all at once.  It’s a spy book, it’s a superhero book, it’s a mystery book all rolled into one.  The tone is just this side of James Bond, while still managing to keep Dick Grayson true to his roots somehow. The writing and dialogue are genius.

The icing on the whole cake though is the consistent level of amazingly fantastic art. Janin finds great angles and terrific panel layouts to convey the drama and action in the story focusing on all the right beats at all the right times.  Along with that are Cox’s colours and shading which are always spot on and give a real depth to Janin’s art even without the typical hatching and cross hatching.

At a mere $3.99 per month (and even less if you subscribe like I do) this is a title that is a home run each and every month so far.

For me this issue is a 10/10.

  36. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  37. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  39. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
