Everything you've come to love about RUN! is on display this month: beatings, fire, explosions, guns, jokes at the expense of the less fortunate, stupid costumes and stupid people. You get all this entertainment, plus the shocking chain of events that leads to the Human Flame getting a new girlfriend. It's all downhill from here...

    The highly-detailed and stylised art enhance the story and the character of the Human Flame. The villains may be laughable but they are still dangerous and rather awe-inspiring. The Justice League, who make a guest appearance, also look quite impressive. Read Full Review

    Out of all four "Final Crisis Aftermath" series, this is the only one that's gotten better every issue. It's gotten to the point where I'd actually recommend it, especially if you like your supervillains goofy and your protagonists bumbling. It doesn't seem to be aiming for anything more than that, and why should it? It knows what it is, and it embraces it on every page. Read Full Review

    Freddie E Williams II does another admirable job trying to keep things lively with his cartoony art, but again, even his energetic visuals aren't enough to get this issue off the ground. There's just no getting around the reality that there's not enough meat on either this character or this story's bones to make me care, nor is their enough style to compensate for its lack of substance. This is a miniseries that probably would have been better off left at the conceptualizing stage. Suffice it say that after only three issues, it's already run out of steam. Read Full Review

    The art is good (though the cover stylings bear no resemblance to what's inside) and the story does what it needs to, but Mikeis at once too bland and too sleazy tobeas lovable as TonySoprano. Read Full Review
