    "Escape" #2 is a difficult to sum up since so much of what makes it great is in how its executed, not what actually happens. What happens is unclear and part of the ongoing mystery, but the manner in which Ivan Brandon and Marco Rudy tell it is marvelous and far different what you normally find in superhero comics. It's not for everyone, but good on DC for trying something new and different. Read Full Review

The parallells to the Prisoner are more muted this issue, but still there (as well as comparison's to Neil Gaiman's issue of "Miracleman" where Evelyn Cream shows up in a town where all the agents are kept to keep them out of trouble in the Brave New World) and there's still not a clear sense of when or where this is happening. Had this come out BEFORE Final Crisis as a strange preview of the World That's Coming (Heh...) I think I'd have been more likely to love it. As it is now, the sense of anti-climax kind of permeates anything Final Crisis, and the trippiness of the issue doesn't help. Still, I feel more positive about the series 1/3 of the way through, Read Full Review
