Personally I was a little disappointed, or at the very least I'm still not totally convinced.

Steve Dillons art gets all the usual criticisms - too flat, everyone kinda looks like the characters from Preacher, cartoony blood etc - and its far too early to praise Cloonans characterisation when you consider that Frank doesn't utter a single word in this issue.

Then theres the story itself - all very bland. Drugs that make people crazy. Mysterious unseen kingpin type character. Bad guy with a sadistic fetish. Useless cops. Its like story writing by numbers.

And what about Frank? Considering the guy is supposed to be a tactical genius, why on Earth would he go into any bust armed with nothing more than a pistol and a t-shirt?
