DC Comics, 157 Pages


I’ve always been amused by the Knight and Squire characters but more so by Squire, as I always digged her outfit.

This miniseries was six issues long and it was more of a parody than a standard story.

While it exists in canon, it focuses a lot on characters that are ripoffs or homages to more famous DC Comics characters. For instance, we meet Jarvis Poker, who is a wannabe version of the Joker with I guess some Riddler and Mad Hatter thrown in.

While I found some of the comedy bits to be amusing at first, it wore on me pretty quickly. Luckily, the real Joker eventually shows up and the story takes more of a serious turn.

This is lighthearted and fairly fun to a point, but it’s not something I’d probably ever want to read again.

I did enjoy the art, however.

There’s not much else to say really, which sucks. But this was pretty drab and luckily it was short enough to blow through.

Rating: 5.25/10
Pairs well with: other more humorous DC Comics stuff.
