    A rather uninspired outing this month, as having a character confronted by a villain who embodies this character's worst fears is hardly an innovative plot, and the big revelation about why Venus is so terrified of this childhood trauma is quite unimpressive. However, I think my biggest problem with this issue is that everything is resolved a little too cleanly, as conflict & questionable behavior are this book's lifeblood, and this issue is almost too ordinary in how it resolves its conflicts. I mean take the scene where Tike challenges Guy for leadership of the team, or way that the tension between Dead Girl & Venus is done away with. I mean this book has the cast acting too friendly, and here's hoping this is a passing fad, as I prefer the back-stabbing, self-serving behavior that was this book's trademark. In fact the only really seedy behavior we get in this issue is Doop's peeping tom sequence. Read Full Review
