Ah...Smith's run.

Personally, I'm kind of torn on that one. I may be in the minority, but I certainly didn't find it bad...but I didn't find it to be top-notch. I'd probably rate the stories about about a solid B. The first story-arc deals heavily in the supernatural, and reestablishes Ollie as GA.

I didn't like it quite as much as I did Guardian Devil, but I don't really have a lot of experience with Smith's comic writings to compare it to.

I do think that Smith's way of bringing him back was both imaginative and appropriate. Something I don't often find with resurrected super heroes.

The second arc, as was mentioned above, introduces a new villain: Onomatopoeia. I actually like the second story better. I think the characterizations are a bit better.

Sadly, I'm not very far into the series after that. I finished Archer's Quest, but haven't gone beyond there...
