Thanks to my geeky husband I am much more of a graphic novel/comic reader than I used to be.  I read mostly one-offs and short runs; I don’t have the patience to wait for the next issue, though I do love the X-Men and if Gambit was a real person he’d definitely be on my freebie list.  Mostly I read bound collections from the library.

This was a little on the gross side, and I never saw Act 3 coming, which I liked. My favorite part was the last 2 or 3 panels, where the author shows what happens in the aftermath. Sure, the good guys were really bad guys, but they faked being good and actually did some good along the way. And now they’re gone and no one is around to do good, even as a front…

4/5 – I took off a point for the nasty visuals/over-gross factor.
