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.
Pairs well with: other more humorous DC Comics stuff.
