Same here, but I've only read the first one so far.

You did finally. Ok, Hellboy is a bad example, except it isn't for the rest of the series which most people read in trade if at all and wouldn't want to review an isolated issue normally. Point has been proven regarding Scalped, though, as a half a dozen regular reviewers have chimed in.

I'm just trying to explain to Eli Katz why certain (often really good) books aren't picked for review as a matter of course.

Finances prevented me from picking this up. I'm kind of glad I did.

My LCS is closed as of today, so no opportunity to Byrne-steal it. Maybe I'll review Secret Avengers instead. :-D

So I do have to apologize for this comic. It was not the comic I meant to pick since I had no knowledge till wednesday morning that it was a fill in issue and where the story was going. That said this was still an ok issue. It had flashes of DIni's notes specifically the IVY stuff. The Ivy side of the story if fully developed could have been entertaining. The Catwoman and her sister stuff pretty much sucked. This issue lacked the fun Dini brings to writing Harley and when he does she's one of the greatest characters in the book. She's tough, naive and damn funny. Please don't hold a crappy issue of a good book against it especially when it's an unannounced fill in. Unfortunately these fill ins in both of Dini's books could get me to drop both of them very quickly since I have no desire to read other writers. I get these books because I want to read Dini on Bat characters. It's really a shame because Dini has made this such a fun book that this not being his issue hurts it the most.

The art on this book was pretty meh as well. March though full of cheese cake is still a very good stylized art and I'm afraid he'll be snatched up and join the upper escehlon of DC artists soon enough. Paul Nyegun not so much.

For flashes of decency but disappointment over all I have to score this a 5.8

So either Dini asked for a breather and this is bedard finishing his story from that one shot or editorial forced this on the book. :?

if editorial did it, why the wrong solicit? Even if it is underhanded, it is stupid because it makes the book returnable.

I really don't have an answer. Tony is a great guy but this is Paul's book, I want stories wrote by him in it.

At this point I'm guessing like pretty much the other dini fill ins it's surprise by Dini. Hey I'm not going to do this get someone else to do it.
