    In the end, this isn't about the redemption of Crossbones. This isn't him seeing the light of the world. It's more him seeing the absolute black of the world and maybe thinking he's only a dark shade of grey. He might not be perfect but he isn't perfectly broken. This revelation won't lead to him becoming a new man, I wouldn't think, but it might make him a more useful character to have around the Marvel Universe. This is one of the definitive Crossbones stories and an issue that entertains on many levels. I'd buy many more like this to develop a true anti-hero. Read Full Review

It would have been nice to see Shalvey cut loose when the conflict takes a turn for the unexpected late in the issue, however. Read Full Review
