    Not much progression on the overarching storyline, though you can't deny Herc gets plenty to do in this issue. Read Full Review

    I have yet to be convinced of the quality of this new Herc series. As a fan of the character it is tough to know whether this is because The Incredible Hercules was so good, or whether it's that the new locale and tone of the series has changed the character from what I enjoyed so much before. Regardless, I'm willing to stick with the book for now, but Pak and Van Lente will need to step it up if they plan on making me continue to fork over my hard earned cash for the entire run of this series.

    As for the "Fear Itself" tie-in? Aside from an explosion at the super-criminal prison of the Raft, beats me. (And considering criminals seem to break out of the Raft every other day, it's hardly a tie-in worthy event.) I suppose I should be happy that it will draw in some more readers, although since this is the least interesting issue of "Herc" so far I hope they stick around past "Fear Itself." Overall, it's a perfectly fine issue of "Herc," but I'm expecting great, not just good from this title. Here's hoping for a stronger fourth issue. Read Full Review
