    I'm a big fan of the character Longshot, so the promise of his putting in an appearance during this arc has me quite excited. On the other hand, I've never been a huge fan of Mojo, or the Mojoverse, as past writers have overplayed the idea, so that what could've been a fun poke at television was just this side of nails on a chalkboard when it came to entertainment value. Thankfully Judd Winick seems to have a nice grasp on the character of Mojo, as he not only comes across as a real threat, but there's also some genuinely funny moments in this issue. From Mojo's delightful barrage of clich dialogue, to the scene where he chastise himself for forgetting the order in which one is suppose to use torture to compel people to carry out his wishes, this issue earns itself a recommendation, as it's the only time I've actually enjoyed Mojo as a villain. The focus on Morph as something more than comic relief is also a welcome touch. Read Full Review
