Good premise doesnt always mean a good story but almost everything works in this first issue of Talent. Parts of the story have too much dialogue. Early in the issue a lot of explaining and analysis is done when Nicholas Dane is found. Later, when Dane is explaining himself, again, there is too much dialogue. This can be forgiven as the reader needs to understand the story in order to enjoy it. And a first issue almost always has a lot of telling to do. The strengths of this issue far outweigh its weaknesses. The writing is overtly cool, blending suspense and a grasp of the improbable. The suspense builds from panel to panel, and this peaks the readers curiosity. The writing is excellent because of an almost perfect combination of action and dialogue. No reader will be bored with the Talent #1. The artwork comes across like a cartoon with a lot of blacks and grays added. Its different than anything else being published by Boom!

Not exactly bargain priced at $3.99, but thats an argument for another time. Read Full Review
