Amazingly, our titular Resurrection Man has little to do with the action of this issue. Captured by the federal government program he once apparently worked for, Mitch Shelly is run through a virtual reality ringer so realistic that his death in the fake world can trigger his abilities to spontaneously generate a new superpower upon his death. As his former co-workers and enemies look on, it will fall to the few friends Mitch has left to save him from a fate worse than continually repeated deaths.
This is Javier Pina's first issue on this series and it's a shame that he won't get a chance to continue on with these characters. A former artist on Manhunter, Pina's style is a natural for the dark, twisted world of Resurrection Men. Hopefully he'll find a new regular job somewhere else at DC Comics.
