Rush City #1

Rush City #1
Virgin Cover to Issue #1.
Meet Rush- a cocky ex-paramedic who for some reason decides to become a sort of savior-for-hire. Here, Rush, with his souped up sports car, has taken a job in which he will rescue a little girl, probably kidnapped, who got separated from her mother while boarding the subway.

There’s a mystery about Rush and why he refers to his car as a human being. Rush City’s back cover tells you to go online to read the exclusive online, origin-telling, issue #0. Sadly, that was like 10 years ago when first published and the link no longer works. Issue #0 was released in very limited release inside an issue of Gamepro Magazine, but I don't know which one to look for. Plus Rush City hasn't been released as a trade, so I doubt that I will ever find this issue. So I guess some research is needed to find out what makes Rush, well Rush.

Despite this problem, I really liked the book. The action and writing were awesome. The art was fantastic and Rush is a great meta-human anti-hero that DC sadly just never really picked up on.

Worth Consuming

Rating: 10 out of 10 stars.
