    Stand-alone issues have been used to great effect in Y: The Last Man and other Vertigo series like Lucifer to provide background stories and to catch up with supporting characters. Here, though, 355's origin feels like a bit of a lull, contributing little to the ongoing adventure and not compelling enough to warrant a break in the action. It's a good read, but fails to leave a strong impression, one of the few issues in the entire series to miss that mark. The main impact of this issue is that it leaves the reader impatient, rather than eager, for the next installment. Read Full Review
