    The mood is very dark & depressing in this book, and I don't know how many more months I can take of such an unrelenting sense of doom & gloom. However, I genuinely care what happens to these characters, and there are moments, where Ed Brubaker seems to be fully aware of this fact, as there are several scenes in this issue where one almost gets the sense that these characters are never going to overcome the depressing status quo that has been established.

If all the characters are circling the drain, it's difficult to be affected since the rhythm of the story is one-note. Read Full Review
