    What you have with Reborn is pretty much your standard Heaven vs Hell fantasy epic that has been told many times. While this isn't really a bad thing this book doesn't really grip the reader with how by the numbers it is. The world while very intriguing isn't really fleshed out at all. There are so many questions I would of loved for Millar to of explored and explained but instead we get a panel with a character saying "ehh don't worry about it, don't think to much on it." In this day and age with fantasy comics a dime a dozen there really needs to be that epic world building to really get me hooked and Reborn falls quite short. The story itself progresses nicely with classic good vs evil battles, a devilish evil overlord, and plenty of action. The last two issues really seem to ramp up on some of the ideas Millar was wanting to explore and really make the ending VERY enjoyable but its a little to late. The art is where this book does stand out just a little. Capullo's character/monster designs are amazing in this book are really gives the world a very creative look! Overall this isn't a bad book at all. It tells a coherent story and has fantastic artwork. I just really wish this world of Reborn would of had the epic feeling that I expected with the masterful creative team behind it.
