Turncoat is a somewhat humoristic riff of some of our most well known superheroes. They are not exactly mentioned by name in this comic, but it isn’t hard to find characters that resemble Batman, Superman etc. This story is about a man called Duke, he’s part of a group of superhero assassins. Duke however really sucks at his job, but being completely unaware of this, he sets out to kill one of the biggest superheroes in the world. Kind of makes up for a great plot there.
This comic has a lot of humor to it, but at the same time you can’t really say that the art is particularly “child friendly”. There is a lot of blood and a lot of splasher-like deaths and injuries pictured here, still done in a comic way though so no need to be grossed out.
I think the art it amazing, not to mention the wonderful cover, and the plot is original and fun. The characters are well developed and you will find loads of twists and turns you probably didn’t see coming. This comic has everything a comic need and all pieces are placed exactly in the right spot.
There isn’t a chance one would get bored reading this, so..read it!
