ISSUE #1

Loved the art and ... okay, loved the art.

This issue's story was about as nondescript as you can get. Just nothing here, really. The one thing I did find was frustration. I mean, one of the points of this book was
the assassination of a character. Okay, fine, but what assassin goes for a body shot? None. None assassin  Cheesy. Head shots. Always. Why is Widow putting a vest on the target? oh, so the assassin can shoot, from across the street, into the intended targets chest ... ONCE  Roll Eyes Look, if the intention of the shooter was to possibly kill the target, but to at least send a warning, okay, fine, one body shot, but if you are getting paid to kill you do what every assassin does and aim for the cranium. AIM FOR THE CRANE!!!

I can't stand when small errors like this get me irate, but it really does just ruin the moment for me. Again, I like my fiction as realistic as possible.

But ... very good art. Without that, this book would be below the average mark

5 outta 10 - Vests that wouldn't stop a hollow-point shell of that caliber anyway.

Issue 2 won't wow you either.  It's not a bad book but got the chop from me on the pull list.

Ah, good to know. I have issue 1,2 and 3 here, but maybe I will just skip ahead to issue 3 so I can get these back.  Undecided thanks

Issue #3

More of the same. Good art, bland story with flaws that irk me. This time I am use to the art so it can't get the bonus point.

4 outta 10 - weird ass color changes
