    If nothing else, I'm crossing my fingers that the unique setting will allow for a few interesting avenues for Gischler to explore. I don't recall the Louisiana bayou being the setting for many Marvel books. So far, though, these new villains just don't compare to some of the great and terrible scum Frank has faced in the past 70 issues. The problem with Ennis setting the bar so high, as always, is that it becomes that much harder for subsequent writers to match him. This arc could easily develop into something interesting and exciting, but overall this first issue is a disappointment. Despite the fact that Gischler only has four issues to work with, his opener is slow, plodding, and not a good sell for the story as a whole. Read Full Review
