Simon Dark #7 Review


Writer: Steve Niles
Artist: Scott Hampton
Colourist: Chris Chuckry
Publisher: DC Comics

Its a shame, but after a promising start Simon Dark has really been plodding along recently.

Yes, Niles makes you feel for Simon (his naivety and innocence is endearing) and Scott Hamptons almost photo realistic art is incredible, but information about the titular character is now being drip-fed, and over the issue it seems his story hardly progresses. Mix in the by the numbers, “zombie-fied” public story and sadly you have a less than satisfying read.

This modern day Frankenstein take sounds like it should be a high concept idea. I hope it climbs some more rungs up the ladder quickly.
