Steven Sadowski from JSA admirably fills in to charge Striker Z's battles and the relationship he seems to be forming. The only false renditions come in the form of the plug-uglies which lack a Jack Kirby feel that Mr. Busiek of course probably wished to imbue and the depiction of Skyrocket. Her expressions for seem uncharacteristic. Read Full Review
One of the more enjoyable issues Kurt Busiek's given us on this book, as it turns the spotlight on Striker Z, and while the plot isn't exactly the most innovative story to come down the pike, the issue did make solid use of its lead character. The issue is also helped by a nice twist in the final pages, and the question of what motivates Striker Z's desire to play the role of super-hero gets a nice showing. Kurt Busiek also develops Striker Z into a pretty likeable character, and I rather like the interchangeability of his powers, as he's a nice low-rent version of Iron Man with his collection of devices. The issue also offers up the always welcome idea that many times the true evil is not immediately apparent, and while the final revelation wasn't wholly unexpected it was appreciated, as it allowed Striker Z to show he's able to recognize when something's too good to be true. The book also features guest-art by Stephen Sadowski which is always a welcome addition. Read Full Review
