Man or man, this is like a dream come true for me. Natasha is just about my favorite lady in comics and I'm a sucker for espionage books (Velvet is hitting ALL the right notes for me), especially set in a super hero universe. After Liu's run on the character I was worried I wouldn't get to read another great solo title with her anytime soon. Glad this team is telling her story.
Yeah........my problem with this comic is that from the start, it's just been a rehash of ideas from Kingdom Come and The Authority, while pretending to be something brand-new and revolutionary. The fact that what happened to Grace in this issue is pretty much just an inversion of what happened to Wolverine in Old Man Logan didn't help.
Bingo...I'm overall enjoying this, and it's the only recent Millar work I can say I've cared for. However it does feature its share of his distracting Millarisms. At least there's been no rape...yet.
This in a nutshell explains why you don't purchase these sorts of games when they're first released. Just wait a few months to buy the version that has all the DLC on the disc, and likely at a lower cost.
That's what I plan to do for ARKHAM ORIGINS. That should be out just about the time the last story DLC is released. Just what happened with ARKHAM CITY.
@shadowx: That's like calling Wednesday. They were obviously going to do a DLC version.
Bingo, and yet I did this go around. I thought I'd learned my lesson with Capcom and their babbage. D'ohwell. I've pretty much DL'd everything I felt was worth it so this version has nathan to offer me.
