Read full description of the books Penguin: Pain and Prejudice:This was really a great Penguin story, but it was so sad!
I mean, on one hand I felt bad for little Oswald, but at the same time, he was a horrifyingly creepy kid.
I've honestly never thought of the Penguin as a dangerous villain, but this comic changed my mind. He was a total psychopath when it came to dealing with people who he perceived had wronged him.
Probably the most disturbing thing in the entire book was the incestuous undertones between Cobblepot and his mother.
Maybe being a mom myself made that whole relationship seem even ickier, but I doubt it. Gross!
(view spoiler)[ There's this one panel where it looks like she puts her tongue in his ear when he's a little kid...to thank him for something he made for her! (hide spoiler)]
OhMyGod! It burns! I can't un-see that! ACK!
Like I said, the whole book is just sad. I know the blurb says something about him possibly being considered an anti-hero and maybe finding true love, but I just didn't see that at all.
He certainly wasn't what I would consider an anti-hero, unless you think that bad people never ever do anything nice. Occasionally, even the worst people will do something kind for someone they like. And as far as finding True Love? It didn't seem that way to me. Nobody as crazy as the Penguin could ever really love another person.
Well, he loved his f*@#ed-up mother, but that's about it!
It may sound like I hated this, but it was really just one of those books that was good, but hard to read.
And I never thought I'd say that about a comic with Penguin as the title character.
This one's dark, folks.
