    Anderson also turns in his usual affecting job on the ground level. His characters brim with emotion, wear appropriate costuming, and find their moods reflected in their postures along with (this being a pulp comic) their deformities and cartoonish exaggerations. What makes it all work is the series of small moments that Busiek orchestrates (featuring brief but powerful glimpses of Hellhound, Tommy Gunn, the Platypus, The Incarnate, the Irregulars, the Jade Dragons an abundance of richly colorful street fighters to fill out the gritty urban milieu) into a remembrance of things past, and times bygone. One gets the feeling he could keep doing this forever, and in fact there are two more Books planned. The only drawback I can think of is the infrequency of the issue. But thats because theyre always, like this one, worth the wait. Read Full Review
