  -Rule #1 definitely in effect: Standard, "write by numbers" CoC turd story. However, Binghams pencils are serviceable and I did enjoy seeing RM cry.

  DeFalco: Jim! We have FINALLY figured out how to make the Circus of Crime popular!

Shooter: go on...

DeFalco: what we do see, is we do an issue of Two-in-one with the Thing and two randomly chosen other heroes...

Shooter: I'm listening...

DeFalco: THEN we increase the SIZE of the Circus by adding several more performer types with horrible powers that will only show up in one or two panels, once of whom we'll name after a Herald of Galactus just for kicks...

Shooter: you have almost sold me, bring it home...

DeFalco: this is the most important bit...we "humanize" the Ringmaster by showing him crying!

Shooter: Sold! An instant classic!

  The Thing trashing that truck with a tent pole was pretty great

  The Ringmaster needs to screen customers at the entrance - no entry for the blind (didn't he get foiled by Daredevil under similar circumstances?).
Bingham's art keeps this close to par for me.

  Why do they keep letting the Ringmaster and his circus of crime out of jail? And why would they still allow them all to work at the same circus... Don't they have probation officers in the MU?

  The action in this was good enough for 3 IMO. It was cool to see Iceman do some cool stuff.

  At this point, the Circus of Crime automatically gets 2 stars.
