CBR Review: Greek Street #16

I recently reviewed Greek Street #16 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Before reading Greek Street #16, the final issue of the series, I decided to reread the entire series to put the issue in a proper context and judge how it acted as a finale to the series. While the ending may be premature, Greek Street never rose above a certain level of quality, petering out at ‘decent’ or ‘good’ often, derailed by too large a cast and an ever-changing status quo that never allowed for many of the characters to gain any traction. Given the book’s roots in Greek mythology, relying on types instead of fully fleshed characters is keeping with the themes presented, but it doesn’t make for an engaging read, necessarily. There was always a sense that the story was leading ‘somewhere,’ but that remained the case for the first two story arcs, resulting in this week’s finale being that ‘somewhere’ whether it was intended or not."
