    This book would be a fantastic must-read if it weren't a Big Two comic, but since it is, it remains one of the very best limited superhero series to date. It's so spectacular and this is perhaps the best issue of the entire series. Read Full Review

    Pour yourself a Gargleblaster (neat, if you know what's good for you) and enjoy. Read Full Review

    Rocket's vengeance heist runs into cliffhangery problems. Untangle this story and put it in chronological order and it's terribly simplistic. That's probably why Al Ewing tied it up in a knot, and the structural complexity does a decent job of making a by-the-numbers story entertaining. (It relies on one of the Technet clowns having literal do-anything powers, which I think is a Very Bad Sign.) The quality of the series as a whole is very much going to be decided by its final issue. This might be clever groundwork for an awesome conclusion or a time-wasting exercise holding back a disappointing finale. If it were an all-around *stronger* piece of work, I wouldn't be so worried about the latter possibility.
