Parker has made an enemy in Golem…can he sort out the situation before it gets any worse?

    A somewhat uneventful issue when it's stacked up against the previous issues, as aside from a fairly intense meeting between Parker & the main villain of this miniseries, this issue is largely about laying the groundwork for the big finish next month. Now the story is still holding my interest, and next issue looks like it's going to be a rewarding finish to what has been a very solid miniseries. Still, following on the heels of the past four issues that were steadily building up a fairly impressive array of obstacles for Parker to overcome, this issue does feel a bit laid-back. In any event, the meeting between Parker & the Golem is certainly worth the price of admission, and the final couple pages do a great job of setting the wheels in motion, so one can't help but feel things are going to end very badly for poor Parker. Still, the best stories are always the ones that make it look like the hero is doomed, and Brian K. Vaughan has certainly done his job in this department. Read Full Review
