I swear I do not get this book. I just don't understand why all of comics' major writers--Joss Whedon, Greg Rucka, Brad Meltzer--cream all over this stuff. Like, sometimes you can not like a thing, but understand why other people like it? Not here. Nope. This shit makes no sense to me. The only thing I can imagine is that it's because the protagonist is an intelligent, capable woman who isn't a scantily clad pinup with huge jugs? She's a powerful lawyer who wears a (very modest) superhero getup once in a while and kicks people's asses when she can't convict them in a courtroom. Which seems a little unethical, which they barely even mention in the book, but whatever.

Mostly it's crime is that it's an uninteresting read. All the right moving parts are there for an interesting story, but Andreyko doesn't really do much with them.
