'Insufferable' by Mark Waid, with art by Peter Krause tells the story of a crime-fighting sidekick who grows up and gets a big mouth, and a big head, and how the rift between these former partners is being used by villains to trap them.
Nocturnus and Galahad were once a crimefighting team, and they were good. That was until Galahad's mother died and so did Nocturnus' wife. It was made worse by the fact that the wife and mother were the same person. Now this father and son rift is further complicated by villains who plant a nasty rumor about Nocturnus. Add in Galahad's brash, bragging ways, and you have a family squabble of large and public proportions. Nocturnus wants to live in peace and fight crime. Galahad wants to tweet about everything he does. Can these two come together to fight a group of villains who may be out to get rid of both of them?
I liked the story of these two. In a short number of pages, I got pretty engaged in the story. Galahad comes across as a jerk with his publicist and his Twitter followers. Nocturnus seems a bit disengaged, but cares about keeping his son safe. I also liked the art. It's an interesting take on a superhero team and I liked where it went.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
