    The Rook #4 leaves the plot hanging but wraps up just enough of its threats to offer a really good conclusion to this mini-series. Could we use more time traveling adventures? Absolutely, so by all means Dark Horse let's make this happen! Read Full Review

    If I sound like I am being harsh, its due to disappointment. Go back and look up Batman Legends of the Dark Knight story Prey (issues #11-15 or TPB), or go even futher back and look up Master of Kung-Fu from the 70's. That's the Paul Gulacy I remember, that's the Paul Gulacy I want to see. Unfortunately, it seems that the only way I get that particular wish is if I find Dane's Time Castle. Read Full Review

But the art isnt good enough to save this comic. Lots of ideas, some good, some bad, some nice flourishes and cameos, but ultimately flawed. Read Full Review
