Obscurity of DC Presents: Obscure Book Club, Week 26 (August 21 - August 27) --- WILD DOG!

Why hello there, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Week 26 of Obscurity of DC’s Obscure Book Club! This week, we’ll be focusing on…


Number of Issues: 5

Description from dc.fandom.com: Wild Dog is a Quad Cities vigilante who targets domestic terrorism. His super-power is guns. In his civilian identity he is mechanic Jack Wheeler, who injured his knee in college and lost a football scholarship. He joined the Marine Corps and quit when his squad was killed by terrorists, then began fighting crime when his girlfriend was gunned down by mobsters. Despite being an excellent marksman, he is famous for simply spraying bullets until his enemies are dead. Wild Dog was created by Max Allan Collins and Terry Beatty, first appearing in Wild Dog #1.

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

  1. Wild Dog often uses lethal force instead of reason and/or brutality. Considering Wild Dog only kills criminals, do you condone or condemn his tactics? Why?
  2. As seen while rescuing hostages in issue one, Wild Dog sprays bullets, instead of aiming (something he’s very good at). Why do you think that is?
  3. Why do you think Jack decided not to speak to Susan King after rescuing her?
  4. Why do you think Lt. Flint just gave himself up to the terrorists in issue two?
  5. Why do you think Lt. Flint was so unhappy to see Graham?
