Mighty Love

Mighty Love by Howard Chaykin.

This just did NOT work for me.
The basic premise is interesting. A cop and a defense attorney turn out to both be vigilantes and bump into each other during a case. Of course, sparks fly.
This is all well and good.
Unfortunately, I found the story itself to be rather uninteresting and combined with the art, it was just plain old hard to follow.
I don't know, I'm a bit distracted at the moment (just moved to Maryland about 10 days ago) so maybe that's it.
Everyone seems to love Chaykin, and I'll grant you that his artwork often looks great but this just annoyed me.
and at times it bordered on 'cutesy'.
Anyhow, just a quick thumbs-down review.
sorry y'all
