Deadman and the Flying Graysons #1 - mellotron12
This is the first time I have seen Mikel Janin's art. Very nice, especially in the opening circus scene when Boston Brand and the Graysons are performing their trapeze act. They look like superheroes with the gift of flight. Deadman is one pose reminiscent of Gil Kane.
Issue spends most of the space introducing the setting (a circus traveling through the Germanic lands) and characters (Boston Brand, the Graysons, Kent Nelson). It is clear that the main source of conflict is Brand's egotism. It is insinuated that he will cause the death of Dick Grayson.
Krul did a pretty good job getting all of this into 20 pages. I do not like for a writer to rely too much on the artist, and in this case I think the book was more art intensive. Less splash, more story! The 1990s are over!
