Summary:
"Edward Burke's moral code, much like his sense of humor, is darkly ambiguous. Though he's a man of dubious principles and ambition, there's no doubt he's the man for the job if it's a dirty one. Dispatched by the shadow workers of the government in a time on international crisis, the Comedian enters the theater of war to have the last laugh" -- p. [4] of cover.

Abstract:

"Edward Burke's moral code, much like his sense of humor, is darkly ambiguous. Though he's a man of dubious principles and ambition, there's no doubt he's the man for the job if it's a dirty one. Dispatched by the shadow workers of the government in a time on international crisis, the Comedian enters the theater of war to have the last laugh" -- p. [4] of cover.

"It was clear to Walter Kovacs from a young age that he had an innate sense of right and wrong, even if no one else did. Frustrated by the surrounding sin of the world and motivated by his unshakable morality, he became the vigilante known as Rorschach. As a masked hero, Walter is able to see the stark contrasts of good and evil in black and white and uphold justice as he sees fit" -- p. [4] of cover.
