One thought on “Proposition Player

  1. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

    This proposition player has become a whale. He's playing for the highest stakes he has ever been handed--human souls.I wasn't a big fan of this graphic novel. While the idea was very interesting, I didn't like the direction the story took or the main character much at all. Joe is a jerk, a lowlife, and a self-absorbed, insensitive putz. Strong words, but warranted. The folklore and mythology aspects could have been an advantage in this book, but they weren't. The situations in which they acted s [...]

  2. Jennifer

    With Proposition Player, Willingham wagers that readers will be so caught up in the casino-like glitz of the metaphysical commentary of its set up that they'll forgive the underlying shabbiness of the story. I was intrigued enough by the concept - small time gambler accidentally comes into possession of some human souls and decides to make a play to become one of the greats - to see the hand to the end, but it wound up being something of a draw.Joey Martin, erstwhile godhead, is a self-centered, [...]

    Though it's moved on from the publishing model, DC/Vertigo used to drop all sorts of strange mini-series and one shots like Proposition Player. They'd vary in quality but were uniformly interesting in the way they toed the line to a lot of the big picture ideas to which Vertigo line played (magic, religion, gothic overtones). Proposition Player falls very much in line with the old Vertigo which I enjoyed so much as a teenager.Of course, the real draw of Proposition Player for today's readers is [...]

  4. Mattyj

    This is a FANTASTIC read. Written earlier in his career by Fables writer Bill Williamham, this is usually overlooked by people while they are waiting for their next Fables trade (which they shouldn't wait buy the single issues! damn it!)A Prop-player is an individual who gambles professionally and in the story one night a group of people know longer have any chips left to barter with so they bet their souls. After our hero wins them he becomes the unwitting pawn in an cosmic power play, as he is [...]

  5. Cale

    This is a fairly dark graphic novel about a man who ends up inadvertently getting 36 souls in exchange for a round of beers, and what happens when outside forces start showing an interest in buying them off of him.Although it references poker a fair bit, it's not as important to the story as the foreword seemed to think it would be. That said, the story is darkly fun, with lots of interesting characters on all sides, and the protagonist, Joey Martin, taking the story in an unexpected direction. [...]

  6. Matej

    Well, this was pretty bad and disappointing.The idea seems intriguing, but awful characters, plot that is basically nonexisting until the last issue which skips into the future and pretty sexist preaching in every issue easily outweighs few things this graphic novel has going for it.The art is mediocre, and pretty forgettable.Overall, skip this one, unless you are really desperate and have no alternative.

  7. Damián Vives

    Joey Martin es un apostador profesional de moral relajada y dudosa ética que tras una charla de bar entre amigos termina siendo el poseedor de 32 almas humanas, situación que lo posicionaen una mesa de juego más peligrosa Joey Martin asciende entre los distintos panteones divinos pero ¿se le puede hacer un farol a Dios?Willingham construye una fábula divertida e irreverente.

  8. TJ Shelby

    I really thought this would be a story about gambling. It was, sort of. Garth Ennis has made it popular to write comics disrupting the Christian time/space continuum, which is okay long as it rocks your mind. This didn't do that. Once I got over my expectations of wanting this to be on par with Fables quality material, it was an enjoyable read.

  9. HeavyReader

    I thought this book was good, but kind of rushed. It could have easiely been a whole series instead of just one book. A bunch of stuff happens, then the reader is told that a bunch of stuff happened, but the reader doesn't get to see how the second bunch of stuff happened. Oh well. Long live the chaos monkey!

  10. Shannon Appelcline

    An amusing light urban fantasy. In some ways it feels like a take-off of Sandman’s “Season of Mists”, but there are still some interesting original characters here and some unusual dilemmas. [6/10]

  11. Anneliese

    What a fun story about god(s)! Probably would have worked a little better if it had been expanded out some (maybe enough to fill 3 graphic novels) but a good read as-is.

  12. Bill Davidson

    All I remember about this book is sub-par artwork and Willingham's clear hatred of women.Fables is supposedly much better, but this book doesn't make me want to read Willingham again.
