    Anyway, this issue bring a well placed sex scene, a great bit of Nite-Owl ass kicking with a bunch of goons and a wonderful moment where a secret identity is revealed in a very grounded and humorous way. We also get a hint at the darker side of the original Nite-Owl's history as it's revealed to Dan. Also, did I mention how twisted the cliffhanger is? That Rorschach really knows how to get himself into some messed up situations doesn't he. Next issue (the last of the series) is going to get pretty messy it seems. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a great read. Though it may have taken a bit to really find it's stride, things have certainly picked up and have gotten more interesting. It's almost a shame that there's only one more issue left. Read Full Review

    The series' presentation takes a hit in this issue thanks to the unfortunate passing of Joe Kubert. Those pages Kubert wasn't able to finish inking are instead handled by Bill Sienkiewicz. There's arguably no artist in the industry more renowned for his bold, striking inks. Unfortunately, the limited timetable and the need to adhere to Kubert's style dilutes Sienkiewicz's work to a degree. His pages stand out only because there a bit more rough and haphazard than Kubert's. This issue still captures the Watchmen aesthetic well, as the previous two have, but some of the finer details are a bit dampened . Read Full Review

    Ultimately, this book doesn't necessarily lack in script, but in plot. It's odd because usually the other way around. However, this would have been ten times more gratifying to see a more straightforward pairing of Nite Owl and Rorschach, or hell, even just Nite Owl on his own, doing some good old fashioned detective work.
