An interesting premise wrapped in not enough of the right kind of drama The set up is pretty simple After a beloved rabbi dies it comes to light that he was actually a con man and that he spent his entire time as a rabbi and leader of the community lying about who he wasIt s a great jumping off point into a story that could really wrap into a lot of uestions that hit readers in the gut Is a good man a good man if he lies to become good Are the good works of a man worth anything if you find he s a fraud And especially as religious leader who has raised a son who wishes to follow in his footsteps are his good works and faith worth anything to the legacy he leaves his sonSadly these uestions don t really get answered in any great detail The story focuses instead on creating the kind of post reveal world I hate One where everyone who has known these people for literally decades just suddenly assumes that everything about this family must be worth nothing I get sins of the father and what have you but this story could have been so much if it showed even a single person attempting to really reach out to the family as a whole and not just to the good son who s still trying to be a rabbiWomen in the supermarket follow after the rabbi s widow to see if she s still buying kosher Really When it s established that she was raised Jewish and Judaism is passed down through the mother ReallyAnd the slutty daughter finds religion again through her dad s lies and dishonesty Really We re doing that still She has to be redeemed out of her lifestyle of enjoyable casual sex and lack of religion She couldn t just take her father s stories and the fact that he was a con man and come to peace with herself by realizing she s an okay person as is because her dad no matter his own background raised her to be okayIt irks It irks a lot There are a few strong moments that show where this story could have gone the final panel being one of them but the trip isn t worth it
