    This issue is far more complicated than it really needed to be as while I was able to piece most of the story together, there's a few too many moments in this issue where characters behave oddly because it keeps the more confusing aspects of the material alive. I mean why does Kasper hook up with Jim Rhodes when he's been given little reason to trust this man, and why does Danny Vincent believe that paying a visit to Kasper's home in the middle of the night is going to provide the answer to the question of whether Kasper is on side. Now Jim Rhodes' plan is rather clever, as he derailed the dirty money train, and then marked the money so that when it re-enters the criminal element, it will essentially highlight the corrupt officials & cops that Rhodes is looking to take down. However this issue handles it in such an overly complex manner that I have to wonder if Christopher Priest is deliberately trying to leave the audience scrambling to put the plot together.

    Give Priest more work. Id like to see him on The Avengers. Then maybe Id give a shit about Marvels mainstream characters for a change. People should be buying this, if they like good characterizations and excellent plotting. Read Full Review
