Holy crap, Montana and Fancy Dan from the Enforcers are back! We haven’t seen these guys in ages. They’ve been bringing back a lot of the old villains, but I really didn’t expect to see the Enforcers again. Apparently Ox got killed, so it’s just the two of them, though.

And if that’s not crazy enough, there also appearances by the Big Man and the Crime Master, both of whom are supposed to be dead! (And Sandman, but that’s not as interesting.) What the heck is going on?! Well, what’s going is that the Big Man is actually Frederick Foswell’s daughter, Janice, and the Crime Master is actually Nick Lewis’s son, Nick Lewis Jr.

This had a great twist ending, a lot of really fun fights, and some good dialogue. I really enjoyed both issues.
