I didn't think it was boring, but probably overcomplicated as the story went straight to hell. Initially, I thought we would spend several issues here, but I glad to see that wasn't the case. It was a really quick read, and there wasn't much substance to it, but rather a hint to things to come like Hades and Wonder Woman's confrontation with Cerberus.

Kramer's work of the souls trapped on this side of the Styx was defiinitely cool. And I would agree that this issue didn't advance the storyline, which is disappointing because the story was moving along at a pretty good pace. Hopefully things will get back on track in the next issue.
