In a great week for DCnU books (definitely be reading the other new mini out this week, Huntress, as well!) Penguin: Pain & Prejudice 1 was far and away my favorite read. While the art was sometimes a little under-done and copy-pasted in a few parts, a large portion of it was pure brilliance (e.g. the cover). What shone the most for me was Gregg Hurwitz’ script and the clear influence he has from the regular prose world. There almost isn’t a need for art with how deftly he sets up the terrible, dark world that created the Penguin and the world he creates for himself in the current day. I felt immediately taken into the story and was so sad when I reached the end but just as ready to pick it up next month! Seriously, you don’t need to be a Batman fan in the slightest to have this story get up and grab you. Give it a go!
