  1. Last issue was pretty good…all I had to do was ignore the time stamping

  2. Prepare to ignore more.

  3. Definitely enjoying this series.  Chaykin writes some great banter.

  4. There’s way too much going on in this book. There are like six stories going on at once and every page is a different scene so I don’t get enough time with any of the characters to even know who they are (like the scene at the end that was just character faces and I could identify 3 of them sorta). I loved the Vietnam stuff and want more of Mclane’s history. I could care less about anything else. I think at the end of this arc
    I’m dropping this.

  5. I’m a fan of this book, but like the franchise, I think this will read much better in trade. Die Hard needs to MOVE. Not stall. The new artist is  DEF improvement over the first arc. The sense of danger in this one is also higher. I trust Chaykin, but I think that when the trade comes out the stories wil move at a brisker pace. I’ll stick with it though.

  6. Also, I think the time stamp is more approriate in this arc. I wish they would have held it till now.

  7. There is definitely a little too much going on here.  The tale of the failed actor seemed really important at the beginning of this arc, but now we’ve got small-town thugs shutting down power to Manhattan.  A bit too much, but I am curious to see how it plays out.
