As Simon’s condition gets worse, he makes a huge break in the case.
We are starting to get some more details and inner motivations on some of the characters in the series with this issue. One thing that I really like when it comes to this story is the pacing of it. Sometimes, when it comes to mystery stories, they can go off the rails sometimes—but I haven’t seen any of that when it comes to this series.
Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel have been doing a great job of really keeping you on your toes about who the killer. We also get a little bit of backstory on the main character which was pretty interesting; I can’t wait to see how that’s going to affect the story going forward.
I think I might be running out of awesome things to say about the art for this series—and we’re not even halfway done with it yet. I really like how Rod Reis uses color to set the tone for the whole page: it’s a very cool, unique technique. And as always, the facial expressions for this are great like always.
This has been one of my favorite non-superhero comics that I’ve read in a while. Everyone that is involved with this book works so well together, and I’m quite excited to see where this series takes us.
I’m giving this issue:
4 Out of 5 Whiskey Shots.
