With a simple and yet powerfully grim story and generally excellent art, this is an engrossing read that is difficult to put down. Old characters are revamped and brutality reigns supreme! Basically, you have to buy or at least read this comic - but please, please, please dont let your kids anywhere near it. Read Full Review
It's never a good thing when a miniseries suddenly switches artist teams, and this time out doesn't really prove to be the exception to the rule. While Val Semeiks does a perfectly capable job on this issue, the work doesn't quite match the level of detail that Dale Eaglesham brought to his issues. The art also weakly conveys the unsettling quality of the Crime Doctor's less than kind attentions, as the expressions never quite get beyond the wide eyed expressions of terror. Still, the art does a solid job on a couple key character moments, as there's a lovely little sequence where Cheshire is pulled out of her depression when Catman starts asking questions about the collars that they're wearing around their necks. Catman's feral qualities are also well conveyed by the art during the scene where the character makes his escape. And any book that offers up a cover by J.G. Jones will earn itself a gold star in my book as he's yet to produce a cover that didn't leave me impressed. Read Full Review
