    The story itself is decent yet unmemorable. Frank's partner in killing, Stuart, becomes the star for a month. I would have expected any story featuring Stuart in such a heavy capacity to touch on the dangling plot thread from issue #10. If you don't know what I'm talking about you probably shouldn't be reading this review anyway. Instead, this is simply a tale of Stuart running afoul of an ex-girlfriend. We learn some interesting tidbits about why he hates Iron Man so much and why he was imprisoned in the Raft, but nothing mind-blowing. Once again, Frank appears for all of two pages. I don't mind him taking a backseat now and again, but the story needs to be of a high enough caliber that I don't feel his absence on every page. The next arc will surely solve that problem, but with Chaykin sticking around I can feel my enthusiasm dwindling all the same. Read Full Review
