    This is a strong first issue from virtual unknown creators, which is always heartening to see. The solid grasp of characterisation and compelling plot makes me confident that future instalments will be worth picking up, and Im definitely interested to see where the story goes. I also have to commend the book for its stark, striking cover with its splash of red. Its an instantly attractive image which also captures the essence of the story within in the way that all good comic covers should. An impressive package which deserves to find a wide audience.

    Was this an interesting read? Sure. Is it for everyone? Well, not quite. Nevertheless, even leaving aside the superhero part, After the Cape story does have a promising start for an intriguing and (in ways) touching human story and that is where it scores the most. Read Full Review

    I really hope this book puts a new and unique spin on this story. The former heros moral dilemma is a good one, and it is different, not so much about right and wrong but rather about family. After this first issue there is great potential for this series. I just hope that it delivers. Read Full Review

    The art is reminiscent of Sin City in its black & white negative style. However, After the Cape has decidedly softer lines and relies less on straight lines and sharp angles than the former. This suits the book as the atmosphere is not as harsh as that of Sin Citys. Whether or not it is well founded, there still seems to be hope for the people in After the Cape. Read Full Review

    Just give me a more believable alcoholic and leave some of the ink on the press next time. I look forward to more from what seems to be a growing Signature line from Image. Read Full Review
