riddler13: (question)
[personal profile] riddler13
Back at the golden old days of 2010, [personal profile] kingrockwell started a delicious series of posts about everyone's (?) favourite faceless vigilante. While reading those posts, I remembered how much I absolutely LOVED the O'Neil days back when I was a wee little lad. So I waited with eager anticipation for each and every post of that series, especially when he started to tackle the 80's incarnation of Vic Sage, a.k.a. The Question.

I don't really know what happened to our good poster, and I'm not sure if he chose to discontinue his series. However, I'll just assume they both took a temporary hiatus and, to keep the love for Vic Sage flowing (nothing personal, Renée!), I'm going to post two issues from the O'Neil run that can kind of stand-alone and will not, I hope, hamper [personal profile] kingrockwell's original idea of making longer posts with overarching themes.

Sorry about the images' layout. Still getting the hang of it )

That wraps up the first issue I wanted to post about O'Neil's The Question. Not one of the strongest, but nevertheless an interesting and intriguing story. That's more than I can say about the next one, in which O'Neil manages to combine my two favourite characters and come out with a disappointing result. I'll try to post it this week.

Meanwhile, give me your thoughts on this one, ok?

O'Neil: Vic the Seeker (pt 5)

I've worn myself out doing little dances over the announcement for Question #37, so I figured I'd celebrate another way, especially since it's been a month and a half since my last post in this series.

We're going through Question v1 #'s 13 & 14 today, a two-parter that runs Vic's endurance, conviction, martial training and detective skills through the gauntlet as he takes on a elite special forces unit gone rogue. I was originally going to put #15 in this post as well, but after re-reading it I'm still not quite sure of my take on it, and it's subject matter is heavy enough that it should be analyzed on its own.

O'Neil: Vic the Seeker (pt 2)

After the first arc, O'Neil's series tended toward Vic confronting a Curiousity of the Month, set against the backdrop of a Hub City trying desperately (and mostly failing) to put itself back together.

O'Neil: Vic the Seeker (pt 1)
featuring the Post-Crisis debuts of Tot, Lady Shiva and Richard Dragon!

When last we left our hero, he was brought up on charges by the Cool Quota Cops. In the two months between his appearance in Blue Beetle and the debut of his very first self-titled series, he was found by a jury of his super-cool peers guilty of hubris in the first-degree.
The sentence, carried out February 1987 by Dennis O'Neil and Denys Cowan...
