I was really attracted to the concept of this novel where in the future some evil corporation has spliced human and animal genes to make super soldiers.  The main story artwork is a bit muddy, simplistic and Dark but it does the Job. The Cover artwork inside the book however, is really good and was what I was expecting for the whole collected edition. I found the story to be a bit disjointed but interesting enough to keep you reading. The low for me was the “Howard Stern”  Shock Croc story which I think was pretty much filler. I have read lots of negative comments about the Captain Stoneheart “Pirate” story but I actually thought it was OK.  The stories are often introduced by some sort of quotation that vary from some really interesting Science and political stuff to the overly long biblical quotes.  The book is printed on really good quality paper stock and is good value at $16.99. [ISBN-13: 978-1582409344]. 6/10
