    The Perfect End to Snyder's Run 0

    I've been anticipating this issue for 2 weeks and it does NOT disappoint!  Jock's art is PERFECT for this issue and the writing is great!  The monologue given by the villain is one of the best comic villain monologues I've ever read.  You get the perfect blend of intent, past, and craziness.  If this villain sticks around, he may end up giving Joker a run for his money for how creepy things can get.    The last few pages are not only a great ending to Scott's run, but a great ending to the serie...
