The only trouble with the sparse dialogue and heavy action is that the issue blows by even more quickly than normal. Each issue of Casanova is a mere 16 pages long. Between the low price tag and dense storyline, usually that's plenty. This month... not so much. I just love my Casanova too much to be entirely satisfied with 16 pages of shooting and eye gouging. Hopefully the next issue will have more of a timely arrival. Read Full Review
