When a guy who has been reviewing comics for 25 years says that you had better recognize and see what it is.
I have read the worst comic I have ever read | Savage Critics
Speedy, perhaps you know, has recently been known as “Red Arrow”, and is/was a member of the Justice League of America. He’s had a weird and tortured past: his name used to be “Speedy”, after all. He was famously addicted to heroin. He slept with Chesire (who he calls “Jade”) — a genocidal mass murderer in the DC Universe who once blew up the country of “Qurac” with nuclear weapons. They had a daughter, named Lian, who was recently killed (along with tens of thousands of other people in “Star City”) by Prometheus. Prometheus also ripped off Roy’s arm, leading us to this series, where he’s meant to “rise” to become Arsenal.
That’s the backstory, here is what happens in issue #3:
Page 1: Chesire shows up to (theoretically) kill Roy, blaming him for Lian’s death. They fight, and Roy’s thought captions on this page are about how hot she was in bed. No shit: ” Next to Kendra (Hawkgirl), Jade was the best in bed.” Chesire has poisonous fingernails that will kill you fairly instantly. She is shown scratching him with those fingernails, though he isn’t poisoned (?), and the scratch marks completely disappear on page 2 (??).
Page 2 -7: they fight, to such scintillating dialogue as “Bite me, Jade.” and “You’re a skilled assassin, but as a mother — YOU SUCKED!”. Roy uses various things sitting around (a tennis racket, a stapler, an extension cord) to battle Chesire — this is apparently Roy’s new superpower, fighting with whatever junk is sitting around, which is excitingly McGyver-esque! Using the extension cord like a whip (which is OK, “She likes it ROUGH anyway”), he ties Chesire up, porn-submission-style. Then they make out, and start to fuck….
Page 8: .. except it turns out that he’s impotent!
Chesire then disappears from the comic without another word or mention of her.
Page 9: Since he can’t fuck, he decides to go beat up guys. “I need a release.” and “For me, they serve their purpose” he thinks, as he sticks knives in faceless people’s arms.
Page 10: full-page splash of Roy standing over a bunch of unconscious guys. “Much better” says the caption as Roy makes an O-face.
