It blows my mind how quickly this book has gone from being a relatively down-to-earth crime/sci-fi mash-up to a full on massive alien space-ship getting blown to smithereens. But it’s not a bad thing, Liefeld and Tieri are going for it with this book, and it’s a whole lot of dumb fun. In this issue, Grifter and Deathblow are captives of the ridiculously over-the-top Helspont who rants and raves at them before Grifter reveals he deliberately let himself get caught, and breaks free to cause some explosions. This book is everything that’s good about Liefeld-style comics really, it’s bug, dumb and full of massive guns and plot twists. Scott Clark returns on art this week, and it’s as good as usual, he manages to make all of the Liefeldian bombast a little bit less… silly, for want of a better word. I just realised that everything I’ve said about this issue is a back-handed compliment, but I genuinely did enjoy it, I swear.

Well God bless you for taking the hit to read and review this book. I'm clearly not man enough to take up that challenge.
