    The book opens with a pretty enjoyable tussle with Typhoid Mary in which the character's madness is on full display, and by the end the character does come across as a bit of a victim, instead of a ruthless killing machine. It's always nice when a writer seems to recognize that villains have to bring more to the table the simple mustache twirling villainy, and while she's still very dangerous, and it's probably for the best that she be locked away, the idea that she was living a perfectly happy life before the Kingpin paid her a visit does add a nice element of tragedy to the character. As for the rest of the book, I have to say the more I see of this Agent Driver the more I'm liking the character, as he's a refreshing change from the typical "by the book" agent we normally see.

    Brian Bendis has reprised Typhoid Mary as a very lethal adversary; I hope we see her again soon. Bendis, for all his strengths of dialog, is perhaps even better at conveying the menace and razor's edge danger of his villains, without ever resorting to tired conventions and clichs. The next couple of issues should result in traumatic consequences for Matt and his extended family; hopefully it will also forever decide the issue of costume or not costume the audience has been on the hook for far too long now. Come on Brian, we deserve that much, don't you think? Read Full Review

    Marvel Knights is supposed to be on the edge---a selling point of our mutual friend, Joe Quesada. But the TV show is starting to lose its demographic. Maybe they should change the format to "Bendis says the darndest things." Read Full Review
