I apologize that this review is a few days late. I know saying "I fell asleep" is usually a joke when something is extremely boring, but... I actually did fall asleep when I was reading this prior to when I was going to review it. You see... I was already very tired... and it was extremely boring.

I'm going to say this YET AGAIN... WHY DOES THIS BOOK EXIST??? I mean... I've surprisingly really liked most of the issues but why not make it about an entirely new character in the Watchmen universe? Why is it about a Rorschach impersonator other than to use the name as its title??? Why not use this to breathe some new life into that world? Uuuuugh. Toooooooom, wth.

So basically a lot of words happen, and nothing happens. There's a bunch of pages dedicated to our nameless detective having people tell him that they can't talk to him because of their jobs. This is a huuuuuuge filler issue.

But what DO we learn? The body that was found in the septic tank on the ranch was an agent who worked for the Redford campaign, and the Redford campaign provided the tickets to for Myerson and Cummings to get into the Turley event. Then at the end you find out the agent's assistant kills herself and left a message about how that all happened. So that's it. That's all you need to know.

Bits and Pieces

This is mostly filler, and way too wordy for a filler. It's a waste of time with only a few bullet points. As much as I was surprised how much I was liking this series for most of its run, it looks like Tom King is going to leave us with his usual habit of none of it going nowhere and having a disappointing ending. I doubt he even remembers the thing about Kovacs' DNA or most of the things he put out there and never revisited. I'm glad this is almost over.
