    This mini-series is already starting to feel overly stretched out. This was the kind of issue that seems to be twice the length it needed to be. Granted, Garth Ennis doing war comics isn't really a bad thing but it just seems the story is taking too long to get to the good stuff. The comic book is a hefty read so you get your money's worth but there probably isn't much in here unless you just can't get enough of the character. I am hoping next issue brings something new to the character of Butcher in the form of solid pain. Read Full Review
