Review: Discombobluated: Reconsillyation


When it comes to most wars across the world, the facts of the war are pretty much not up for dispute. Historians can agree on what happened at the Battle Of Normandy. Then there are wars where “facts” depend on who tells it. Take, for instance, the Mexican American War, where they view Pancho Villa as a hero while America has looked at him as an antagonist.

James Bowie and William B. Travis, are considered heroes of the Alamo, while Mexican history has always looked at them as agitators. Then there is the whole drama behind the War Of 1812, where to this day, no one can agree who won that war. This becomes even more entangled in personal relationships, where no one can agree on anything. In the eighth story arc of the hilarious and relevant Discombobulated, David tries to amicably come to terms with Annie.

We find David, meeting Annie, where she assumes he is there to apologize to her for any misgivings, but he is looking for a more equitable end. As David soon realizes that there is no middle ground with her, as she takes liberties with his amenability, as she thinks his olive branch is his way of them getting back together. David eventually takes his apology back and understands immediately that reaching back out to her was a mistake. By the story’s end, David finally realizes how silly reconciliation is and decides to go back to his therapist.

Overall, a fascinating chapter which shows the ills of dealing with exes. The story by David F. Walker is side-splitting. The art by DJ Parnell is wonderful. Altogether, a story that gives an honest look at reconciliation.
