It's all out in the open now. Who is the man that looks EXACTLY like Alan, but younger that shot at him in the first issue? Well, read the book to find out, silly. The explanation makes sense and fits into this world and the tone writer Nathan Edmundson set up in the first issue. While this book has some science fiction elements to it, which are revealed in depth within this issue, it's still rooted in reality, and I love that about this series.
This film feels like a great action spy thriller. As I mentioned in the last review, I compared this book to Leon: The Professional, and that feeling is still there. This plays out like the opening of the second act of a spy thriller where the protagonist starts piecing things together about the company he used to work for. If you like films like this, you'll feel right at home as you glide through these pages.
I love Nic Klein's art on this book, especially the colors. I love the tones. I love the fact it looks washed out and nothing really pops. The panels are dynamic, we're not just looking at 50 panels of straight on medium shots. This is pure eye candy.
For me, so far, this book is up there with Invincible and Walking Dead. I know it may be a bit premature, but I'm enjoying every aspect of this title, and it's a book I'm now super-excited to read every month.
Nothing this month.
This is one of my favorite Image titles right now. It's a fantastic book. It has the feeling of a great spy action thriller with a great mixture of science fiction that is not too "out there" to turn you off to it. Nathan Edmundson has a great story here and has done a great job writing these past two issues. In addition, Nic Klein's art is wonderful and I love the tone he sets with his art and colors.
Overall, I highly recommend this series. It is fantastic.
