When Joe Fitzgerald was hired to find a runaway, he never imagined that pursuing that case would take him into the afterlife itself, pursuing the man who was also responsible for the death of the woman he loved more than life itself.  Having crossed into Hell, Joe at last discovers that what seemed like a simple case is in fact a plot to tear down the walls of Heaven, overthrow God and reboot Creation itself...and Joe is the only man who can stop the destruction of everything.

    Dealing with the damned has never been so entertaining. This is must reading. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Ten Grand has been very Shakespearean, and when the eventual full series hardcover comes out, it'll make for one heck of a read. Read Full Review

    Fantastic use of the captive hero being regaled by the brilliance of his nemesis heightens the tension going into the last couple of issue and explains the high stakes for everyone involved. The choice posed to Joe is both impossible and cruel as Straczynski really tests his creation in the most intriguing of ways. Read Full Review

    Thing is, even though I think this issue in particular took some cheap workarounds and felt frayed in its roughly-cut continuity, I'm still interested in seeing where this goes. Again, I'm a big sucker for angelic wars in the afterlife, so I remain on-board to see where the ramifications of this issue take us next time. I just don't like being simultaneously reminded how badly this book apparently suffered after its unfortunate creative shift, or that something this "okay" could have been so, so much better.
