This gets better every month. Its insane! The art have been consistently amazing. But the script is the pure gold for me. What James Tynion is doing with Bobo is, for me, like what Geoff Johns does with "forgotten" characters. Hes an amazing character in this series. Theres a page where he does a monologue that made me stop and read it again like three times because it was so good!

I went in wanting to like this one. I kept looking for moments, but there were few I liked. Overall it was an uninteresting story, with muddled dialog, and was completely void of any emotional content or connection to any character.
