There was little that I did not like about this book and I am glad that I picked it up. I am eagerly looking forward to the next two issues in this miniseries and would highly recommend anyone that is a fan of the above mentioned Brubaker/Phillips titles to go out and give this book a shot as I am confident that you will not be disappointed.

Had the writer spent a little more time establishing the relationship between those two characters, it might have been easier to accept. On top of that, it might have humanized Baladine enough for the audience to give a damn about him. Read Full Review
