  1. Chaykin.  Hmmm…

  2. The last time Chaykin got to write one of my favorite characters, the result was Guy Gardner: Collateral Damage. Pass.

  3. @sakuuya  Yeah, I remember feeling really stupid for having picked that up.  I was just caught up in the GL Rebirth excitement still.  But I was totally not a fan of that Collateral Damgae mini.

  4. Chaykni’s art makes me physically ill. I have no opinion on the writing because I can rarely get beyond page 2 of his books.

  5. @scallionsncreme: They seem to have gotten cover artists to reinforce that feeling. Holy shit, look at his foot!

  6. If this wasn’t such a crazy week I’d pick this up. Love Chaykin. And it’s nice to see Roger Cruz again.

  7. not a Chaykin fan, per se. But anything with Ol’ Mags as the center must be checked out at least. For me, anyway.

  8. I withdraw my previous statement. This is a horrible book. DO NOT BUY THIS! The art is terrible. The story goes nowhere and literally nothing happens in this book that we needed to be told about in a one-shot.

  9. ooopsxlandmine hit it right on the money with his comment…so disappointed 🙁

  10. This was awful.
