Happy! is the latest book from the mind of Grant Morrison, arguable one of the best writers to ever grace the pages of Batman, giving life to another dark city, but this time with a hitman. We know Morrison can do well established characters and do them well, but can he give this unknown anti-hero life?
Nick Sax is a c**t, with a capital C. He’s the man you don’t want relentlessly hunting you down. His latest hit was well planned and of course well executed, that was until the set up. Now a drugged up Sax sits in a hospital bed surrounded by police and seeing imaginary flying unicorns, except this goofy unicorn isn’t his hallucination, it’s a little girls cry for help.
Grant Morrison has done it again, written a fantastic book that’s an incredible read. You read each page with this awe and anticipation of whats about to happen, then some cartoony looking blue unicorn comes flying in and sets you back saying, “What the eff?” The “hallucination” should be out of place, but you completely realize where the story is heading in the next couple issues, and you’re completely down with it. It’s such an awesome idea and I’m glad this book went running with it.
Happy! is a four part series you’ll want to be reading, pick up a copy at Cosmic Comics! now!
