Even though I'm a little disappointed that the Masters of Doom arc will have to wait a bit longer, Millar more than makes up for it with a short Christmas mystery/horror tale to keep my sated until then. Hopefully the payoff/reveal next issue is as good as I'm expecting. Read Full Review
More than anything else, this issue reminded me of the film The Wicker Man.

The result is a good superhero horror yarn that succeeds in building suspense and intrigue that will surely be paid off in the concluding chapter. Read Full Review
