    As massively fun as ever, though a little too hurried and underdeveloped to break the ceiling into greatness. Read Full Review

    It's impressive to see how well Neil Edwards' pencils have held up over the course of the series so far, especially considering the sheer amount of action and spectacle in these last few issues. Edwards brings a very precise and cinematic quality to the book. What does need improvement however, is his anatomy. Edwards shares many similarities with Bryan Hitch, and like Hitch figures are sometimes rendered in static poses, bending and twisting in ways that shouldn't be possible on a normal human body. As before, Edwards still has a ways to go in terms of finding a truly unique visual style. Read Full Review

    If you can read this book without wanting to grease yourself up and march around screaming "THIS! IS! BROOKLYN!" and kicking your enemies down comically long shafts, you're doing it wrong. The combination of Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente, and Hercules has been a winning one for a very long time. Read Full Review
