Don't skim over the panels that are without dialog. Let the artwork tell the story. This is an outstanding first issue that builds on the lore of the Wise Dogs society.

The artwork is growing on me. The cuteness of the artwork offsets the creepiness of the story in an interesting mix. Love the dogs! Lots of character.

This is an anthology of 3 stories about John Stewart, Jessica Cruz, and Guy Gardner. I would give the stories a 3.0, 7.5, and 6.5 respectively. The artwork in the first is straight up flawed while Guy's art was okay but not very compelling. Jessica's story may be recycled a bit but the writing was fun as well as the writing for Gardner. The writing for Stewart was, at best, an unfinished rough more

There's a good story in here somewhere but it gets glossed over for awkward, unnatural dialog. Interrupting the action to show us two pages of something happening somewhere else was confusing and served little or no purpose.

The artwork is superb at contributing to the story and characterization. This book could stand alone with no lettering at all and still weave a good tale. The writing only makes this book better by telling two or three stories at the same time more

That time stuck. No thanks to The Joker. Or to Phantasm, who now has her sights set on Catwoman because...
