    Default Happy!, #2

    Trapped in a mob hospital at the mercy of the cold-eyed torture expert Smoothie and his team of dedicated sadists, the only hope for Nick Sax is Happy the Horse! With three days to Black Christmas, can our unlikely duo stay together long enough to stop Pedo-Santa's rampage?

    I know it's just been one issue, but I find it strange that anything by Grant Morrison does not have a ton more buzz going on for it...

    I'm surprised that Naoki Urasawa isn't suing for his title back!

    Even after only 1 issue this book is great! Morrison's work reads refreshingly like no one else's. Great comic!

    I generally enjoy Morrison's creations, but this, at this stage, is not appealing to me: it resembles Who Framed Roger Rabbit...

    This feels more like a Mark Millar book than a Grant Morrison book, but i still like the story.

    Loved this issue! Five star review! I really disliked the first issue too. With the explanation of the horse I'm happy with it now. I reviewed it, and recommended it in my 10 dollar budget, with a bunch of pictures too, here.

    Meh. I'm a huge Morrison fan and think he's infinitely talented. Yet if anyone else wrote this, I would drop it. The stories ok but nothing jumps out of me. It seems pretty par for course.

    Hah, yes. I assume it's not a problem because Urasawa's manga isn't licensed.

    Really? This isn't classic Morrison. It's almost like someone doing a Morrison impression.

    Who wants classics Morrison in a mini with a flying horse? I bought for the cool art by Robertston only and Morrison is writing Sax in a fun way to read about an unlikeable noir character.

    Its enough to enjoy a series like this without being the writer, the artist best work ever.....
