    I'm still a bit stuck on the idea that this miniseries isn't focused on the plot element that had me snatching up the first issue, but I will say that the book is a highly engaging read, that is making pretty solid use of its characters. Now I do believe this book's cast are all characters who made their debut in the Golden Age of comics, and that they became public domain a while back, so these characters likely all have backstories & previous adventures that probably would make these current adventures more entertaining. However, even with my lack of knowledge about their backstories, this miniseries does an admirable job fleshing out these characters in a relatively short amount of time, with this issue being a pretty solid detective murder mystery.

Beautiful women are often a tonic to any production. These two act like a pair of depressants. Read Full Review
