Helltown review

This book is written by Dennis O'Neil a comicbook writing legend known for returning Batman to his dark roots back in the 70's and creating the famous supervillain Ra's Al Ghul.

This book covers the origin story of my favorite underrated character in DC Comics, The Question.

The Question is a detective character that is somewhat obsessed with conspiracy theories, he doesn't have powers, but he makes up for that by sheer skill. You can watch him in several episodes of Justice League Unlimited voiced by Jeffery Combs. (Re-Animator and Batman TAS)

I loved this book, because it gave a very noir feeling to the story that seems separate, but still very part of the DC Universe. The special appearances by Batman and Lady Shiva notwithstanding.

I say you should read this book, because it will add to your list of DC knowledge and if you don't like that, you can have a good mystery to read with fun characters.

If you like The Question, invest some time in reading his own comic series from the 70's and 80's and watch Justice League Unlimited.

That's it for this review. Catch you later, nerds.
