Retailers -- Don't just invest in Scarlet Spider comics! Diversify!
Going back once again to the early ‘90s, the next DC Casualty will be Gunfire, a series that perhaps doesn’t have the critical reputation as the previous entries. You might even say that this concept hasn’t aged particularly well. If someone were ingenious enough to finally look back to mainstream ‘90s comics as a source of ridicule, Gunfire might even be seen as an easy target.
Okay, let’s face it, people like to make fun of the guy.
I wasn’t even aware of this title’s existence during its run, and only discovered it through house ads in a couple of cheap back issues I purchased a few years ago. And, yeah, it’s certainly “of an era” you could say. However, the initial creative team isn’t bad at all, and I am interested to see how exactly the gun-blazing/armored hero concept played out in the mainstream DC Universe. Now, shall we take bets on whether Gunfire has been killed or merely mutilated in the past ten years?
