Obscurity of DC Presents: Obscure Book Club, Week 113 (June 9-June 15) — CRIME TAILOR!

Why hello there, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Week 113 of Obscurity of DC’s Obscure Book Club! This week, we’ll be focusing on…


CRIME TAILOR!!!
AGE SUGGESTION: 12+

Number of Issues: 6

Description from dc.fandom.com: Paul Gambi is a tailor who works out of a small shop in Central City. He is infamous for designing and providing costumes for Central City’s most notorious super-villains, particularly the Rogues Gallery. Later he designed costumes for Justice League Europe, a team which included the successor of the arch-foe of many of his former clients, Flash.

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. How does Paul Gambi’s previous history with The Flash impact their relationship? How does it impact Gambi’s relationship with the rest of the JLE?
  2. Crime Tailor is hardly a dangerous villain. Which aspects of his character keep him relevant in comics?
  3. Which of Crime Tailor’s suits is your favorite? Why?
  4. Peter Gambi (Black Lightning’s close friend and confident) is Paul Gambi’s brother. How are the two of them similar? How are they different?
  5. After helping the JLE, would you still consider Paul Gambi to be a villain, or has he redeemed himself? Explain.

Do you have an interest in exploring the unknown? Do you like discussing comics? Do you like pineapple on pizza? If so, The Obscurity of DC Club is the club for you! Join HERE if you’re interested!
