    Ultimately this is a hard issue to review because going into too much detail on what I liked about it would also spoil the issue for anyone who has not read it yet. Suffice to say Lincoln hooks up with Patrice Andauer and Janez Nikovic (Nicky) over the course of this issue and they end up mixed up in a plot involving the international thief known only as Ulysses. Cryptic, I know, but believe me, if you like intrigue and suspense mixed in with some action wrapped up in a knife-sharp plot this is a comic you should be checking out. Read Full Review

    This book is not bad, but it is not good either. It falls with plenty of other comics that are just average. The plot and dialogue feel like it could belong on any number of USA Network shows. The art helps power the book through the many pacing issues of the book. When there are so many comic books on the shelf currently its not a stretch to say there is probably a better book sitting right next to this one. Read Full Review

    I definitely appreciate it when creators trust the audience, and Grant gives his readers a lot of it, here. However, in a story about con artists and spies, the real fun is in watching everyone play their game, and you need to know what game everyone is running in order to appreciate their plays.
