    This was a solid first issue, from the choice of style, the choice to go purely black and white, and the dialogue, it all comes together to create an atmosphere as if you were in a 60s crime movie. The narration and dialogue by Mills are definitely throwback to that era. The art by Burchett, although shows flash of Alex Simmons, has a knack for drawing this time period. Overall, if you loved those old tough guy movies, you will appreciate and enjoy this series. Read Full Review

What I like about this book, is that some of the elements are familiar giving it a kind of gum-shoe quality, but there is enough variety influences to make thisread fun and engaging. Issue two promises to conclude this story with issue three a reprint of the original Scavenger book for a whole new audience. Read Full Review
