In short, the book has been a brave experiment but a real disappointment. The Gray Area isnt any place I want to visit again soon, and the three origin issues feel padded and insubstantial when compared to many of the other dense and intelligent comics out there today. If Romita had given us the origin in a more exciting, condensed manner, he could have taken more time to explore the possibilities of storytelling in his strange world. As it is, the whole book sadly symbolises missed potential and a mishandling of an idea which could have been so much better. Romita is still a master creator one duff book isnt going to take away from that but this is hardly his finest hour. Read Full Review
