    Issue #4 goes long way in firming up this book. It's been "good" up to this point, but now that the plot elements are paying off, the ranking has moved up to "Damn good." Marc Guggenheim knows what he's doing, and he's got an art team that gets better together with each outing.

We still don't know what the long-term plot of the series is going to be, so there's still hope Guggenheim finds the right character and plot mix. The only thing that keeps me from believing that will happen is that most of the problems are how he's telling the story rather than the story itself. Read Full Review
