Everyone's favorite anti-hero continues the quest for his secret origin (so secret he himself doesn't even know it) to drug war-torn Mexico, where even the billion-dollar bounty hunters of The Org, the mysterious super villain underground, fear to tread. But instead, he discovers an even more formidable threat: the newest murderous Marvel sensation, the bad guy you'll be talking about for years, or possibly minutes. Are you prepared for the senses-shattering debut of...THE DON OF THE DEAD? (Hint: No. You're not.) Rated T …$3.99

    "Taskmaster" could have been, by all rights, a throw-away mini-series. Instead it's one of the smartest new books I've seen come along in a while. Van Lente and Palo have kicked their work up several notches, and I'm dying to see the remaining issues. Who knew a mini-series about a villain that trains other villains could be so entertaining? Definitely check this book out. "Taskmaster" is fun from start to finish. Read Full Review

    I was originally a bit on the fence when it came to whether I was going to pick up this mini-series, but I've been pleasantly surprised thus far by how much I've enjoyed the series. Hopefully the next three issues can keep up the pace, and I look forward to seeing how the twist at the end comes into play and directs the rest of the story. Plus, I can't wait to see what exactly next issue will be like, as the promo page in this issue merely says "Next Issue: A Village of Hitleres?!!" Read Full Review
