Perhaps the most off-beat issue/episode yet!

Where else can you hear about an old man giving himself a cottage cheese sponge bath, a child who’d rather be eaten than see her captor beaten up… and also have a text-story in a turn of the century comic book?!  It’s an odd one, all right!

Plus: A very Jack Drake-focused NMaiLbag!

    I really enjoyed the Alfred story. Solo Alfred stories are a very bronze age “Batman Family” thing, that appeals to me. I can’t remember if it was in continuity at this time or not, that Alfred had been a spy during world War II. Alfred shows that he is not a man to be trifled with. He is more than just a simple butler.

    My second favorite story was the Huntress one. I think that Helena realizing how her approach to vigilanteism is seen by the children from her school is a crucial point in her hero journey. It is a nice second step moving on from her team-up with Spoiler in Cataclysm to where she is at the end of No Man’s Land.

    Rucka writes a good story, but I came here to read a comics story with pictures that enhance the words. Prose is a different discipline that I enjoy, but not when I’m expecting a comics story.
