    The whole issue just left me scratching my head, really. Why did DC feel the need to launch this new series? Is there a demand for Punisher rip-offs amongst DC fans? Did Wolfman really feel that strongly about exploring this concept? It sure doesn't feel like it. Everything about the book, from Wolfman's writing to Rick Leonardi's art, seems like it's been teleported right out from the 1990's most forgettable comics. Read Full Review

    In The End: Anyone want to take bets that the next issue has the Vigilante defending his actions? God I hope so. I don't want to have to wait five issues to get the full story. While the issue felt light, it was well written and the art made it all go down smoothly. Hopefully the action will pick up a bit, but the characters are interesting enough to stick around for a few more issue. Read Full Review

    Vigilante is a mess. The cover promises something interesting: a mystery, an urban legend angle to a vigilante story. Inside, we just get poorly edited drek. Nobody asked for a new Vigilante comic; what's the point of releasing one if you're not going to do a good job on it? Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Dec 31, 2008

    Rick Leonardi's art, while traditionally reliable on superhero books, seems incredibly out of place on a story that wants to be crime fiction. Leonardi tries to go for a dark, gritty, atmospheric look, but falls short. The one redeeming quality to this book is Walt Simonson's dynamic cover. If you can justify paying $3.00 for that cover, then I say go for it, otherwise please vote with your dollar, avoid this book like the plague,and let DC know you expect better than this.
