Comic Alliance's Hot Ink Reviews Pilot Season: Murderer
YOU REALLY DON'T WANT TO GET IN HIS HEAD - Pilot Season: Murderer 1
Popular culture has taught me that there are two kinds of telepathy. There's the good, desirable kind where you can selectively read other people's thoughts, turning that ability on and off at will. This kind of telepathy generally leads to a heightened, compassionate understanding of the human condition and a valued place on a team of heroes.
Then there's the other kind of telepathy. The kind where other people's thoughts flow uncontrollably into one's mind, with no off switch. This kind of telepathy usually leads to those afflicted with it huddling in a corner, hands pressed against their temples, yelling things like "No!" and "The voices, make them stop!" to no one in particular. Unfortunately for Jason Sparks, he ended up with the second kind. And since he's the protagonist of a book called "Murderer," you can probably guess he's not dealing with it all that well.
