This book just gets all the more fascinating. Spencer is a great writer. I mean look at his Jimmy Olsen back-up versus this— that is some damn versatility in style and everything. Compare this to guys like Frank Miller (an overrated hack who really can write only one kind of story. This is a very dark but intriguing tale of a man who has lost everything yet is going to lose even more if he keeps running. I like how each issue is going to focus on a different agent and this time it is Lightning – who with each run sees the future and his eventual death – each time getting closer and closet to the present. No this Speedster has nothing to do with the Speed Force. (Although I would love to see him guest star in the Flash!). Great stuff.
