    A pretty solid finish to this miniseries that is somewhat undone by Brian K. Vaughan's decision to use part of the issue to set up confrontations that I'm assuming he plans to resolve in a follow-up story. I'm not sure how well this miniseries sold, and I hope that Brian K. Vaughan included these teaser scenes because he had the okay for a second miniseries, or even a monthly title. However, I'm a bit concerned that we'll never see these interesting little moments resolved, and truthfully they don't really belong in this final issue any way. In any event, the resolutions that we do get are well done as Parker nicely slips his head off the chopping block, and we see his solution is pretty cold, as he sets up Lady Rapier to be executed in his place, so he can get the FBI off his back. My only real problem with this issue is that the moments of dark humor are largely absent from this final issue, which is a shame as it was this element that made the previous issues so entertaining.
