    A better than average issue of the Matt Fraction era. While it was not a great story it was more focused and that really helped if you can ignore the characterization established in previous stories. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 15, 2009

    I've been threatening to drop this series for some time now, but it always sucks me back in with a decent issue with art by Terry and Rachel Dodson. However, now that I'm back on board with the vastly superior Read Full Review
