With this one, I am so glad I got this from the library, though I am ashamed that I made them spend money on it.
It is BAD. The writing is pretty awful, the art is all over the place, the plot is incomprehensible, the characters are bland and colorless. It's everything I detest in a comic book.
Trying to think about what the worst part of this was, I would have to say the plot. Nocenti seemed to change the plot on a panel-by-panel basis. One panel would feature Killer Croc - then next page would be Jack Ryder. Flip a few more pages and we are fighting Coil. It was just so impossible to follow!
Then you have the revolving door of artists that appear in this comic. Cliff Richards and Alex Sanchez were just two of the FIFTEEN artists, pencilers, colorists, and inkers that worked on this trade. I won't profess to have read a LOT of comics, but the ones I have read, there were no where near this many involved in the art. So no WONDER the art was all over the place!
This comic was such a trial to get through, I could only read a few pages at a time. And that tended to give me a headache, trying to figure out who that character was, why I should remember so-and-so and to figure out what was going on.
