The Heroes For Hire go to...the Jersey Shore? With the trade in the Atlantean narcotic Hook running wild, it's time for Misty Knight to shut it down with a lean and mean hand-picked squad that includes Moon Knight, Paladin...and aquatic expert Stingray!

    I never envisioned buying Heroes for Hire. I was originally turned off by Misty's ridiculous sobriquet and her bizarre turns of phrase. That all changed with Spider-Man's hilarious guest-appearance, also kicking off the Hook storyarc. Spidey, as he should have, saw right through her and took the piss out of the whole ruse. After Spidey's appearance, Abnett and Lanning tempered Misty's identity as Control. They admitted some heroes would know who she was. Others would not. Some would not care either way. It's very rare when I give a book a second chance, but I made an exception for Heroes for Hire. Read Full Review

    This is one of the first issues of HfH that I've picked up, so maybe there is more substance to the rest of the series and this issue happens to be a light break between heavy arcs. I love the concept of the team, and the characters are intriguing, so there's a lot of grist for the mill. I just didn't see the best of the story potential realized here. Pick it up if you love these characters. Read Full Review

    This issue is fine, as far as it goes. But the title has been swamped with villains and plots not its own and has really lost its footing on the original concept (bad girl bounty hunters). The cover, by Takeshi Miyazawa, is the best part of the book. Clay Mann isnt bad, but his style is suited to Daredevil or Vertigo, not to alien invasions and little green men and insect goo.
