    Even though Fraction's run on Defenders is an underappreciated gem it is not one to be missed by anybody. Do yourself a favor and read this series. Read Full Review

    Yet for someone who has had plenty of misgivings over this iteration of Defenders, I give Fraction some credit for at least trying to wrap up his messy, loose story with a nice bow on top, and I give credit to Marvel for trying to bring this book in for a soft landing with a nice artistic pinch-hitter.

    "Defenders" #12 brings Fraction's wacky run on these disparate characters to an end. He draws his large story to a close the way it started, just slightly left of the middle. This isn't an instant classic, but there will be merit in revisiting this story as a whole in a few years after letting the initial read settle in. This issue provides some poignant moments and does cap the series quite nicely. Read Full Review
