    This series is picking up with plenty of good and entertaining material. This issue served as a way to get us to understand/trust John Flood. From now on, hopefully we can stay focused on the serial killer. Although, catnapping is fun to read about, too. There was no animal cruelty or anything gruesome of that nature, so this issue was a good read. Jordan is doing a magnificent job of developing these characters and making them work well together in the process. I’m already itching for issue #3! Read Full Review

    The only reason I knocked off a point is because John Flood is such an extraordinary character that it's easy to forget that anyone else was even in the book, after you put it down. Both Berry and the series' villain really need to step up their game in the next two issues.Beyond that, I have precisely zero complaints. A fascinating continuation of a spectacular series. Justin Jordan and Jorge Coelho, I beg of you, work faster. I cannot handle the month-long wait between issues. Read Full Review

    What's most intriguing is that the book doesn't hold the reader's hand through its labyrinthine plot. Given that the main character is an insane investigator who is able to draw unlikely conclusions because he hasn't slept in a decade, it'd be fair to expect that the series would be heavy with exposition to help the reader keep up with Flood's logic. Instead, the audience is aligned more with Berry in that you can only just follow what the leaps and bounds that Flood's mind takes, making for a much more rewarding mystery experience.

    What is clear is Jordan wants Flood to be a classic TV style detective on the pages at hand. In that area, he succeeds very well in making Flood undeniable unique. Where he fails is making him even remotely likable or relatablein any way possible. The whole issue feels like a wild goose chase for a nice “gotcha” moment on the last page that saves the issue from being a dud. I found myself saying, “did I really need to read all of that leading up to this moment?” Perhaps there is a larger explanation coming in the follow up issue, but as it stands, this one missed the mark. With that negative aspect aside, there is a lot to enjoy about “John Flood” as a whole. Do I think this will be on the year's best of list? No, I do not. Do I think a lot of people will enjoy the story and the antics of Flood? Yes, that I do. Read Full Review
