Villains for Hire #0.1 Review


Misty contacts Silver Sable about a heist. The criminal gets away from her so she contacts Black Panther. He takes down Stilt Woman and rendezvous with Hellstrom to secure the goods, meanwhile paladin stops the man behind it all. Elsewhere the purple man makes plans to start the Villains for hire.


The Good

Art-Renato Arlem does good work for this issue turning in the best illustration of T’challa we’ve had since Black Panther vol.4 ended!

Black PantherT’challa under a new writer! Oh the possibilities! DNA handle his use in heroes for hire so well I would be willing to give up the current ongoing Black Panther just to have him as a regular cast member of the heroes for hire team.

Story- Very accessible and easy to understand story


The Bad

End- Sorry boys and girls but since the heroes for Hire ongoing is cancelled we may never again see this cast operating in this capacity.

Length- The problem I’ve realized with these .1 issues is that they are very short and contain stories often times far better than the regular ongoing! Things end just as they were getting good!
