'The Kings new clothes ' ??
on 20 September 2010
Whilst being a fan of Frank Millar, I found Ronin to be a below Par effort from him. Maybe I'm missing the point ( and I'm sure many will disagree ) but
I found the Art scratchy, Overly simplistic, the storyline a little confused and not at all easy to follow. The premise is Good, but the execution is
in my opinion Poor. recently re-read the Graphic Novel,, and I'm still not happy with the overall 'experience'. I somethimes think that Unless
you fawn over the 'Greatness' of his work, you're a little like the Boy who could'nt see the King's new clothes - Everyone queuing up to laud the King,
and being afraid to say that actually, this is a disjointed below par scratchy poor piece of work. Millar has done much better before & after.
Still, that's my view, not shared i'm sure by many, but I can only call 'em as I see them. I actually wrote to DC at the time & expressed similar views,
and the passage of time has not changed my original opinion. As a Piece of Millar work it has it's merits, as an Enjoyable Graphic novel. No, not for me,
