What really stands out in this series is how much Rucka leaves unsaid and how trusting he is of his artist to tell the story. I’m pretty sure that Frank Castle only says 2 sentences in this issue, yet still he’s a major presence. Checchetto really is doing an excellent job. This issue continues Frank and Rachel Alves’ war against the mysterious syndicate. I will say that the only detriment to Rucka’s rather hands-off approach is that the villains of the book are still a little too underdeveloped, I have no idea what they are or what they want. It was interesting to get another little wrinkle in that they aren’t all ex-members of evil societies, the guy with the natty goatee is ex-SHIELD. The final scene was a masterpiece in how Rucka leaves things unsaid, with both the reader and Mr. Goatee think that it’s Frank being attacked, but it’s Rachel and Frank is sneaking up on everyone unawares, silent but deadly.
