    I do like that Sins of the Black Flamingo ties up all the loose ends we have been given and winds the plot around multiple bad guys. As those bad guys are also all bigots, their comeuppance is particularly satisfying. While the story is a thriller at its heart, it also touches on some bigger concepts which makes it a more interesting read. Read Full Review

    This strong and unique limited series reaches an only partially satisfying conclusion because if focuses too much on secondary characters that have not been fully developed. As a result, the Black Flamingo feels more like a pawn in his own story. Read Full Review
