    I have no doubt that Fraction loves The Order as much as the readers do, and it's hard to believe he'd do something as drastic as off the entire squad. But the depressing, gloomy mood that pervades this issue doesn't exactly suggest that this incarnation of the Order will make much more of an impact on the Marvel Universe than the previous one did.

    Whilst it doesn't feel like it's hitting the same heights that it did during the first half of its ten-issue run, The Order is still a better-than-average superhero book - but in a saturated marketplace, that just might not be good enough. Read Full Review

    Remember when Barry Kitson actually drew this book? Me too. It's a complete bummer we're at the next to last issue of the series and Kitson's finished pencils are still sorely missed. Sure, he does the layouts and Javier Saltares does a competent job on finishes, but this is Kitson's book as far as I'm concerned. Not seeing him ride this book into the sunset is just disheartening. I hate to say it, but this is the first issue of The Order I've been disappointed with. The story finishes strong with a sad moment for the team, but everything that happens prior to that is a yawn fest. Please guys, don't let this book go to the crapper with your last issue.
