    They're doing their level best to dance around "Shed."

    True, not that I can fault them for that considering how dark and thoroughly unpleasant the story was.

    I've been re-reading The Gauntlet and just got through 'Shed'.

    I wasn't a fan at the time and the years have not improved it.

    I do commend the attempt to really go dark but I feel like this one should've been killed in the pitch stage. It's just too much.

    The pages for next week's issue looks terrific. I'm sure Spencer is going to deliver another winner.

    It’s funny I only heard good things about The Gauntlet and Grim Hunt.

    Oh yeah, overall they're really good. It's been nice to revisit this storyline having not read it since it was originally published.

    That said, the four part 'Shed' was one section that did not do it for me. Objectively there's some interesting stuff there but I think it's a tad too nasty.

    I wouldn't call it "bad" so much as just "not to my taste."

    So are people going down into the sewers to try and see the Lizard or what?

    by using the same artist? I doubt it. I didn't even read the Shed arc and it was the first thing that came to mind when looking at the preview.



    on another note, I wish that preview was one page longer.
