A throwback to the grim 'n' gritty 1990s has a Joker pastiche named The Stickman doing a rerun of "A Death in the Family" with the murder of a Robin-style sidekick to a Batman archetype. The Insomniac, with an increasingly tenuous hold on the traditional superhero no-kill policy, is now tearing up the criminal element in Twilight City in his quest for vengeance. A group of B-list villains bands together to find the Stickman so they can collect the bounty on his head and put a stop to the Insomniac's rampage.

Of course everything is complicated with tragic backstories, conflicting master plans, betrayals, and loads of violence. I only wish there were more originality or humor.

One consolation is playing the "Which part did Patton Oswalt write for himself in the hoped-for film adaptation?" game. It's not particularly difficult to suss out, but it's still fun to put Oswalt's voice to the character's lines.

FOR REFERENCE:

Fun read. Learned a lot about Patton )not that I neeeded to), but loved hearing his take on some movies I had never heard of. Also liked the time he spent going to all those movies - sounds like fun!. A fun relaxing read,

This was an interesting read. Oswalt found a way to make his descent into addiction interesting.

I felt like he could have been a lot more addicted. Still, he's congenial company.
