    The antagonist is well-done but misses the mark, and the same could be said about the art. Medina's art quality is sound, but his style does not match the tone of the series. With shootings, self-mutilation, and beatings going down in the pages, his cartoonish pencils drain the depicted scenes of their harshness. It should also be noted that a printing error occurred on four different pages that caused the colors to appear outside of the inks, resulting in blurry images. While the error may not have occurred in every copy, it symbolizes the main issue with this series: everything is a little off. Read Full Review

    It's hard to know where the problem lies, when both the art and writing exhibit the same technical proficiency, but absent soul (for lack of a better word) the book feels empty. It's frustrating, because the pieces are all in place between the writing, art, characters, and "fresh start" to see something truly engaging and bold, but instead we're getting something that feels afraid to take much risk.

    Yeah, whatever. There are my thoughts on this one in a nutshell. Wake me when this damned Stryker storyline is over, because I could literally care less about him. Seriously, I'd rather watch paint dry than read ANOTHER story about William Stryker. Read Full Review
