Read in May, 2012

What starts out as a promising detective story from a fantastic noirish writer declines into a typical superhero story with no real payoff. After one chapter the book loses any edge it built, everyone puts on a cape and punches bad guys, and then it's over. The twist at the end of the story comes out of absolutely nowhere (meaning, it is not justified), and relies pretty heavily on the reader's knowledge of minor DC villains. I'm giving this ultimately boring trade an extra star for Cully Hamner's art, which adds a bit of style where the substance is lacking.
