Who knew a story about banking could be so fun?

Evan Adonis is a Bank Information Technology expert who works at the communications and data network for a bank. After finding some documents while going to send files, he finds that someone has been embezzling money in the company. So Evan takes this to his boss and it turns out to be the worst thing he could’ve possibly done.

From that point on it’s just a series of misfortunes for Evan: ranging from almost losing his job, to having assassins sent after him because of what he knows.

I’m not going to lie, the main reason for me checking this book out is because of the involvement of Scott McDaniel. I’ve been a fan of his for a while now and absolutely love his Nightwing run. And while I’m very familiar with his art, I saw he was also going to be writing this series as well, and I was a little surprised.

As far as I know, I’ve never seen anything he’s written before. So I was interested to see what his writing style would be like. And I’m happy to say, it was pretty good. I think it helps that he was able to draw from real life experience from Dimitrios Zaharakis. So with that added on to McDaniel’s storytelling ability, I say it worked out pretty well.

Another thing I was wondering about was McDaniel’s art style with this story. If you don’t know, he has a very distinct style and I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to mix with a story about banking. But it works just fine; he seems able to make anything exciting and fun. One of my favorite qualities about his art is his ability for making unique and fitting panels. The panel layout for this series has a real nice flow that works very well with the story.

For those of you who’ve read this first volume of this series and enjoyed it as much as I did, you’ll be happy to know that they’re starting a second volume very soon.
