    A very entertaining exercise in bad taste, gratuitous displays of violence, and several hilarious pokes at pop culture. All in all it's pretty much all one could ask for from a book that is slated to be cancelled in a couple months, as Evan Dorkin has come on board for a couple issues, and he looks to be having a grand old time of it. The comedy is dark and somewhat disturbing, but it also made me laugh which is all I really ask from a humor based series. From the explanation that the fallen hero gives for why he no longer fights crime, to the Wile E. Coyote style attempts made by Agent X to kill the man, this issue is unabashed fun, and I hope the book makes a nice jump up the sales charts, as Evan Dorkin is a very funny writer, and he's a near perfect fit for this book. My only quibble with the book is that the book's supporting players are a bit out of character, and the book makes no attempt to explain why. Read Full Review

    Alright, now its time to wrap it up. The plot was bad, but it had its ups (not many, but they were there). There were a couple good one-liners that youd expect to see in an Agent X comic, but they were tired one-liners. The art was, well, it was from the not good category. The best panel of art was of the cat eating the Chupacabra head. Which is probably the only reason to buy this issue. Read Full Review
