Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi make a really strong team, which makes for a really strong issue.

This issue gets a little preachy about guns at one point. I can’t say that bothered me. But it might irk the more…gun-inclined. I particularly dug the line, “We don’t need more guns in untrained hands.”

There’s a thug in this issue that looks more than a little like one of the mutants from The Dark Knight Returns. Again, Rodriguez and Renzi make him look good.
