Alan Alan said: "I had higher hopes for this tale of two slaves who escape their owner and join Benjamin Franklin extended household. The introduction of super powers, or that the afro-centrism that is introduced to the characters does not ring true to my reading. "

Maybe I shouldn't try to plow through a mini-series reading in bed and falling asleep. The attraction is not the crossover, but Brain Azzarello's writing. While I have a couple of trades left to go I like 100 Bullets, and I thought his Luthor mini-se...more

This was an opportunity to get a Raylan Givens fix and try out Elmore Leonard’s writing at the same time. I was aware of Leonard’s reputation for drawing memorable characters and dialogue use, and he lived up to said reputation in Raylan.

What I liked about Hickman's final stories in this collection is that he plays around a little more with the FF's role as Marvel's first family. In some ways, more importantly, he resurrects the Black Panther and his nation of Wakanda.
