Two story lines in this collection. The first one is self-contained, the second a continuation of the ongoing saga. I didn't really care for the first one either way. I usually don't mind one-offs and tangents in comics, especially when they answer a burning question. This didn't really feel like a satisfying answer to "Why the bad blood between Jack and Bigby?" It lacked the usual humor of the series, and the timing of the Babe the Blue Ox pages was odd (and even those pages weren't as funny as usual).

The second storyline fared better by me. Action, and furthering of the plot. Some clever plot twists. Much better comic use of Babe the Blue Ox, whom I think should have her own comic, or at least a blog. The saga of "Crash Ganesvoort, Special Ops Mime" was worth the price of the entire book.
