Gerads did a great job with the art, as usual, but that's just about all this book has going for it. King delivers another slog of a narrative, not unlike what we've seen from Heroes in Crisis. What's even worse, though, is that they put out a book featuring Professor Pyg on the cover, and he has next to no visible dialogue! talk about a missed opportunity...
