    Michael Gaydos never disappoints with the stunning visuals in this issue. Every page is an evolving work of art and both the design and details pop off the page as the reader gets immersed in the panels. Read Full Review

    By time we get back to the present, the issue is just about over. And it's a shame. There is so much more that this book can explore besides this. It just doesn't. Maybe by focusing on the here and now, this book would be stronger. Last month certainly proved that. Let's have a bit more of that. I think it would benefit the book greatly in the end.

    I am having a hard time overcoming the irony of At&T/WB/DC lowering the boom on Vertigo as they want less controversial material and then gladly publish this book, which is a bloodfest served with a side of Japanese noodles.

    I know, it's Bendis. He gets what he wants right now.

    Good book, good writing, good art. The height of corporate hypocrisy. 7.0/10.

    It always catches me off guard when a Bendis character calls out another Bendis character for talking incoherently.
