Or Is It Just A ...RUSE?
well, well. Again CrossGen manages to tie their announcements
to the news just perfectly. It's almost as if it were planned...
Ruse started, it was heavy on mystery and mindplay in the
tradition of Victorian luminaries such as Sherlock Holmes...if
Holmes had had to occasionally chase off gargoyles. Original
writer Mark Waid had clearly been building toward something
climactic which thus far has had only some payoff.
in Scott Beatty's hands, the title has become something more
akin to the early pulps. It's a slightly different tradition,
and a slightly different direction, but it's starting to grow
on me. I might not go as far as Comics International does
in the release below, but it's still a fun book.
Why is Simon Archard, Partington's #1 Son, now Public Enemy
Is the master detective in truth a cold-blooded killer?
And if he isn't, can Emma Bishop solve the mystery before
her jailed partner faces execution?
Find out on June 25th when writer Scott Beatty, penciler
Butch Guice, inker Michael Perkins and colorist Laura Martin
present RUSE #21, the latest chapter in the series Comics
International calls "consistently as good as League
of Extraordinary Gentlemen"!
Comics International means the movie version...
