Pennyworth #2 Preview: Really? All That From Being a Butler?

Pennyworth #2 is in stores from DC Comics on Tuesday, but you can read a preview of it right now. Well, technically, you are reading a preview of it right now. And in that preview, we see a flashback to the titular Alfred Pennyworth's childhood, where we see his dad showing him some good old-fashioned tough love by making him cradle a dead body. It turns out Alfred's dad was the Butler version of Mr. Miagi from The Karate Kid, secretly teaching Alfred how to be a spy while pretending to teach him how to be a butler. Yeah, it's all a bit of a stretch… but so is a billionaire dressing up a bat costume to beat the crap out of mentally ill criminals, so, you know, take it all with a grain of salt.

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
