I wanted to like this volume more than I did, and think part of the reason is writer Keith Giffen's dabbling with surrealism. It's just surrealism is not exactly my cup of tea when it comes to reading or movies. Giffen really does know the book's history as he brings in multiple concepts and characters from Grant Morrison's surreal run with the title. In addition, he even trots out Jost from a very unsuccessful revival a couple of years back. There are plusses here. The ongoing politics on the i ...more

The only thing about this run I found interesting was that Giffen attempts to include ALL prior contunuity, which covers about 5 different Eras of DP history dating back to 1960s. (He even included the mediocre Byrne run!) --That made it kinda cool in one aspect only, as every few pages you are quizzed with a "spot the callback reference to better days" and if it WAS something you happened to have experienced way back when, you briefly felt warm & tingly inside, before being bored to death b ...more

Definitely stronger than the first volume, I think in large part because Giffen has decided to more fully acknowledge his Morrison heritage. The final issue, about Rita, is particularly good. However the stories in this volume bizarrely don't seem to go anywhere. Major villains are introduced and fights are begun ... and they stop, and there's no indication why. I felt like I was missing issues as I read, and that ultimately detracted from the enjoyment of any weirdness.
As soon as Jane and Danny returned, I atarted warming to this series. And what Giffen reveals about the main trio of the DP is truly horrific and heartbreaking.

This book series started off like gangbusters, and once again they break up the key characters and we're just supposed to keep reading and enjoy.
