Review quote

"Signing up two generations' worth of legendary artists [Joe and Andy Kubert] is a wise move for DC Entertainment." "NY Daily News" "J. Michael Straczynski's writing is crisp and keeps the story moving -- he's clearly not trying to "rewrite" the original Moore material, but instead builds off on it." "Mtv Geek""show more
