This graphic novel is a collection of three Marshal Law story-lines: Kingdom of the Blind, The Hateful Dead, and Super Babylon.

Kingdom of the Blind is a combination homage to and satire of Batman, as Marshall Law hunts down the surgical vigilante The Private Eye. Kingdom of the Blind skewers the original Dark Knight's origin story and methodology, and there's even a nod to Batman's 50th anniversary near the end. Kingdom of the Blind is probably the best handling of satirizing mainstream super hero legends since the original Marshal Law: Fear and Loathing, and it's the main reason for owning this collection.

The Hateful Dead is one of the many comic books to cash in on the superhero zombie fad that slightly preceded the rash of zombie popularity in TV and film, and is a pretty standard entry into the superhero zombie genre. Super Babylon continues the zombie story-line, and includes a satirical version of the golden age Justice Society, the best part of which is the Marshall Law take on war-time comic books.

While Kingdom of the Blind is the strongest piece in this collection, all three sections contain Mills and O'Neill's patented over-the-top ultra-violence with a dash of sociopolitical commentary, and does not disappoint. ( )
