A decent issue, but probably the worst Fear Itself tie-in this book has had yet, as it suffered from the same problems a lot of the other tie-ins have, in that the Worthy the hero was fighting went off in order to fight in the battle. In this case, we didn’t really get a resolution to the right between Pepper and the Gray Gargoyle because he up and left in the middle of the fight. Fraction does develop Pepper’s story a bit though, as Hammer Corps PR war rears its ugly head again. It’ll be interesting to see where that goes, and how the world reacts when they find out Tony got drunk. The stuff with Tony and the Dwarves was as entertaining as usual, although the scene where the Dwarves suddenly went crazy and tried to kill the Shadow Elves or whatever they were was very heavy-handed. At least Tony’s destroyer armour looked bad-ass. Also, it was pretty cool how one of those two UN guys was based on Matt Fraction, who was the other one supposed to be? Brevoort?
