This book is a fun read along with a cool history lesson on Mister Crime.
The Alter Ego superhero books pay homage to comic genres of years gone by, and this issue pays homage to Crime Comics. The storytelling is classic and the art harkens back to the old school Marvel house style.
And the star of the book is Brother Crime, the ghostly narrator who influences the evil doers to fall deeper into their crimes. While Brother Crime is modeled after the old Mister Crime character from old books like Crime Does Not Pay, he turns out to be an old nemesis of Alter Ego. This was a fun twist.
