Despite the fact that I like both of the creators on this book, there's no way I would have picked this up if not for the Review Group. Crossovers, events, tie-ins, whatever... unless it's a Marvel cosmic I'm not interested.

Sturges has been writing some great comics over the last couple of years on House of Mystery and Jack of Fables. I've been enjoying his comics work so much I'm even reading his fantasy novel Midwinter and it's pretty fun as well.

Run feels a lot like the supervillain equivalent of Jack of Fables. Total scumbaggy character doing deplorable things, but you end up rooting for him anyway. This was a light, but fun read with good fast pacing to match the title. More DC comics should have nipple flames.

I became a fan of Freddie Williams during his run on Robin and I enjoyed his art in this issue. The action scenes were well put together and with a couple of exceptions his noses weren't as funky as they used to be.

Just a quick review. Everything that everyone's praising I didn't like. It doesn't feel like it's a story, it's just big moment after big moment after big moment and I'd like a little more from my comics. Irredeemable characters can be fun, look at Eric O'Grady, but Miller is an actual villain. Not a big, grandiose villain like Doom, but an actual real-life villain, the kind you see on the news, and I don't want to read a comic that makes me try and root for him.
Freddy Williams always feels off, it looks good but there's something I can't really put my finger on, all his people look kinda, mushy, like not fully solid. I bet he'd draw an awesome Clayface though

meh, kind of a throw away issue. I didn't really care for it or the character or his body hair. He's an asshole I get it he's a shlub I don't care,
