review 1: The most fun I've had with a Swierczynski book yet. This story is much tighter than the ones I've read in the past. It features a plot that as usual, stretches, the imagination but a conspiracy so digestible that it barely matters. Into a world of crass commercialism (to which th...

review 1: Duane Swierczynski can certainly write action. This book is almost entirely action piece to action piece, though it still manages to build an interesting story around a nanotech super soldier. But this actually explores a lot of the ramifications of nanotech, more than any othe...

review 1: Even by Duane Swierczynski standards, the Charlie Hardie books are ridiculous. They push the upper limits of credulity and the lower limits of literary acceptability. Definitely a guilty pleasure, and one that I've enjoyed in the past. But with Point and Shoot, I felt like mos...

review 1: Not as whiz-bang action-packed or break-neck speedy as the first installment. The "prison experiment" scenario holds few surprises for me as a horror fan (the genre to which a setting like that typically lends itself) and as an abnormal psyche enthusiast (I find human behavior ex...

review 1: On the whole, I enjoyed this book. As a female reader, I especially appreciate the revamp of Black Canary's look and I love the relationship between Black Canary and Starling. All around a good solid book with some action and enough backstory that you know what is going on (even ...

review 1: I almost set this book aside after the first page and a half, since it appeared to one of those noirish-styled stories, and I just wasn't in the mood. Then the hero time-traveled, and my ears pricked up: I like time travel stories. Unfortunately, the time travel aspect turned out...

review 1: This guy can really write a book that packs a punch. House sitter Charlie Hardie has a real pickle on his hands when he shows up at his gig and finds someone in the house when no one is supposed to be home. Of course Charlie probably did not figure on any of the fun and games abo...

review 1: Absolutely loved this! Fast-paced, inventive plot, strong and humorous narrative voice, characters that leap off the page and impale you with mic stands. What more can you ask of a modern, snappy noir set in LA-LA Land? Sure, it's absurd, but that's part of the fun. And any write...

review 1: This series got a little better in the second volume, though, overall, it remains very, very average. And this volume kinda went all "Captain Planet", which felt a little awkward to me.My biggest complaint is that the characters have no depth. And so it feels strange when we ar...

review 1: Cable escapes into the future with the mutant child born during Messiah Complex, to keep her alive since Bishop seems hell bent on killing her, as he sees her as the cause of his alternate reality, while Cable and the rest of the X-Men see her as the beginning of the future for t...

review 1: So uh Choke? Are we just forgetting about that then?We start out with an unnecessary story from Bat-girl. It doesn't bring the book down because it's Gail Simone. It really just doesn't need to be here. I get that we're going to get Trix later on in this collection but that doesn...
