    As ever Reis artwork continues to impress, carrying the narrative burden with style and ease. His line work and color palettes are sumptuous throughout; likewise, his page layouts adapt to the tension of the sequence without sacrificing clarity or pacing. Even for his reliance on creative visual flourishes, theres a sparseness and minimalism to his panel compositions that make the most of the noir storytelling elements. The play of color and texture, light and shadow create a visually layered and complex world, one just as uncertain and ethically ambiguous as the characters that inhabit it. Read Full Review

    C.O.W.L. #8 opens with a great dual story-telling technique capturing your attention and engaging your emotions. There are some interesting conversations about roles, choices, and following orders which are touched upon throughout the book. However, there are just too many mistakes to ignore. There are bad transitions, out of place panels, and even some "bit (supposed to be big) mitts." The book is also still trying to find someone to fill Pierce's shoes as a doer and someone who is willing to take risks for what he believes in. Read Full Review
