The Gauntlet, the Initiative's top drill instructor, has been beaten and left for dead. And all the evidence points towards his attacker being someone on the base. Who did it? A spy? A recruit? An instructor?

    The issue ends with a very freaky looking Slapstick recalling how he beat Gauntlet half to death in one of the coolest, and most disturbing, scenes I've seen in a while. I never took Slapstick seriously before, but damn this was a cool scene. Look for it in the Comic Book Moments of the Week on Friday. Read Full Review

    And then there was Steve Uy. Uy's work is marked departure from Stefano Caselli, whose animated, energetic, cartoon-esque style has been a defining asset since this series began. Uy is so different that it's impossible to enjoy his work. Furthermore he's incredibly lacking as a storyteller and his characters are completely void of decent emotional conviction or even energy. Virtually every panel falls flat, and you'll be hard-pressed to pick up on the proper message that Slott is trying to convey. A lesser writer would not have been able to carry this story through to completion. Despite Uy's damaging work, this issue is still worthwhile as Slott manages to tell a great story. Just have someone read it to you while you close your eyes. Read Full Review
