Three bounty hunter siblings blaze a path of death and destruction across the old west. Traveling by moonlight they rip criminals screaming for mercy from their hiding places, but none is ever given. Each bounty is torn, broken, and bled dry before they are delivered dead and payment collected in gold - no silver. The Irons are the most feared bounty hunting killers in the west, but that fear isn't based on them being the fastest with a pistol or rifle. It's because they're the Walking Dead.

    Caselli's artwork is appropriately dark given the subject matter of the book, and he conveys the youth of several of the characters nicely, making for a sharper contrast with Fury's tough but weathered appearance. One of the things I like about the characters the most is that not all of them are perfectly fit hero types. This approach is unfortunately limited to the male characters, but the women aren't overtly sexualized either. I think the biggest problem with the series is that title really doesn't convey what it's about. It needs to play up the spy-genre elements more as well as Nick Fury's central role in the book.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Feb 5, 2009

    A moody, pretentious first issue that goes to great lengths to convince you how dark and serious it's going to be, but forgets to be entertaining in the process. You don't need this. Read Full Review
