    Project Superpowers: Blackcross #3 isn't bad but is nothing overly spectacular either and i don't like saying that about Warren Ellis's work but as i haven't read the first two issues and have only had minor encounters with the Golden Age characters in this book, which is a shame as i do enjoy the Masks series and the issue of Legenderry: Green Hornet i read is a lot of fun, showing that Dynamite can make the Golden Age characters work. I have faith that the final three issues will be sterling in their execution. Read Full Review

    This issue could have done with more progression in the plot (This should quickly be resolved next issue) yet is still a quality read and worth your time. Read Full Review

    All in all this was a good issue, not a great one. But I feel it will work well in the complete story. Read Full Review

    Project Superpowers: Blackcross takes away quite a bit of the mystery Ellis had been building by revealing who and what the ghosts are. However, despite this plot revelation, the dialogue and writing are subpar with the conversation lacking flow. Entire questions that should be in place are absent. Worley's artwork is not inspiring. There are a couple of cool splash pages, but otherwise the facial features and body language are hit or miss. This is the second issue in a row that hasn't delivered. I am coming to the conclusion that, if you are going to buy this one you should wait for the trade because the single issues just aren't that good. Read Full Review
