Its a shame Solo is coming to an end. Its the perfect series to showcase great talents like Sergio. These stories couldnt be published anywhere else. Those of you whove only known Aragones humor work will enjoy his extended comedy sequences, and his tragic tale of a father losing his son. Yes, $5 is a lot for one comic book, but this is a comic youll be reading for years to come. Reserve a permanent place in your box for this! Read Full Review
