I'll never understand the mad method behind DC Comics' publishing habits: this is the second volume in a series (issues #7-12) published in (collected form) late 2012 while the first volume was published way back in 2004 (issues #1-6.)

At times, this is a bit too derivative of Oz, but it’s nonetheless a well-characterized, well-plotted, and interesting story that’s quite unique in the comic book world. I enjoyed the continuing story and also Gerber’s work in explaining the mythology behind his series.

I really hope that DC releases the third and final volume for this story.

Not sure why DC decided to publish this collection 8 years after the first "Hard Time" collection, but I'm glad they did. I hope it doesn't take them another 8 years to collect the remaining issues of the comic.

As compelling as ever. Unfortunately, this is the last collected edition. If I want to continue reading, I'll have to hunt down individual issues...

Was pretty cool. Waiting for the first Vol. and the last volume is not even published. Good stuff though.

Steve Gerber graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in communications and took a job in advertising. To keep himself sane, he wrote bizarre short stories such as "Elves Against Hitler," "Conversion in a Terminal Subway," and "...And the Birds Hummed Dirges!"
