This was not bad but it was disappointing because it did not have a truly memorable moment. The main story was more notable than the backup but the backup art was more notable than the main story. On the plus side, there was lots of content and the main cover is awesome. Still think this ish deserves a MB thread and plan on sticking with the book 'til the conclusion of this arc - if not farther. Captain Canuck has more untapped, exciting potential. More details here...

I miss Dad and Dan.

Loved seeing Kirk's art here -- been a fan since his JSA days. But I agree that something's off here -- the story's layered and complex, which is a good thing, but it lacks some spark.

Still better than a lot of stuff on the stands though.
