Alright I picked up this issue, not even realizing that I wanted off after the last one.  I pulled it on iFanboy and payed for it at my shop after bagging and boarding it.  It wasn’t till I got home and asked myself what do I want to read first that it hit me.  Why did I get this?  I don’t want this book! *sigh* well I’ll read it anyways.

Damn I’m glad I got this.  This month seemed to finally start to kick in for me.  I enjoyed that we finally got to see Spoiler in more then the shadows.  We also know now that if she isn’t Stephanie, she still knows who Tim is.  Which I think was a crucial moment in this book.  It gives some of the Spoiler/Stephanie fans out there hope and other people something to think about.  I don’t see why they would need to bring her back from the dead, but hey that’s me.

I enjoyed the fact to that when Spoiler did show up it all of a sudden created chaos.  No one knew what was going on and who this person was.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading how everyone was starting to get scared that there was another purple clad lady running about and this time she’s not in it for the money.

Chris Barista’s art really grew on my with this issue.  The splash of Spoiler was really good looking.  After Freddie Williams left the book, I was sad.  All though it could also be said that it was sad that it took 3 issues for me to get on board with this story.

Anyways this was definitely the shocker of the week.  After two months of not being happy with how everything was going, I’m ready to go.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 3 - Good


  1. I agree with your assessment here jstump.  This was a really good issue and probably the most interesting one of the last few issues.  I had a good time reading this, and I’m interested to see where it’s going to go.  One of my favorite moments was when he went and visited his friend with cancer.  It’s an interesting thing to have Tim talk and think about.

    I enjoy Batista’s art in this too, although I do miss Freddie Williams…he seemed to draw these characters more like teenagers.
