    Aside from the rather amusement that the Purple Purposeless provides, this issue is far more serious than we've seen thus far, and it's also off the beaten track when it comes to some of it's ideas. However, the book still remains one of the truly original titles coming out of DC, and John Arcudi has his cast jumping through some fairly interesting hoops. Now the team is broken up so the interaction that made the earlier issues so engaging is missing, and I do hope the group is brought back together fairly soon, as while they are all interesting characters who can carry a plot all by themselves, the real magic occurs when they're playing off each other. Still, this issue is an enjoyable exercise in that the ideas it's offering up are offbeat enough to be interesting, and the cliffhanger situations that the various arcs end on leave me eager for the arrival of next month's issue. Plus, one has to love Purple Purposeless, and his "do nothing" approach to life. Read Full Review
