I was a bit skeptical from just looking at the cover of the newly announced Image Comics title “OFFICER DOWNE” as it looked like another childrens title (Ala-“FRANKIE-STEIN”) from the publisher, but boy was I wrong. (Never judge a book by its cover, eh eh?) Inside you can get all the scoop on the title that looks to be something of a love-child consisting of “LETHAL WEAPON” and “THE SHIELD”, but trust me when I say I mean that in a very good way. Read on for the skinny.
“Evildoers, it’s time to stockpile up on sophisticated weaponry, lock yourselves up in a secure bunker and say a prayer to the man upstairs – Officer Downe is coming in for the take down, and he’s going to kick your teeth clean out of your skull. The long arm of the law has a powerful assault rifle, an extreme loathing for all things crime and a wonderful mustache!”
