Fear Agent is an excellent science fiction comic book. It's different from Elephantmen because it really doesn't try to ground anything in a realistic setting. It keeps you guessing because you never know when at a given moment a character's head will explode or tear off their skin to reveal they are an alien in a human suit. The comic book is outstanding if you are into this genre at all. This looks like the beginning to a terrific arc. Read Full Review
It falls upon Hilary Barta's "Tales of the Fear Agent" backup to lighten the mood. The art is very solid, at least in the main segment. Mike Hawthorne and Tony Moore collaborate on the pencils. As with earlier issues, the two achieve a style that falls pretty close to Moore's solo work and captures much of the same energy and detail. As for the backup, though, the heavy blacks and distorted figures don't mesh with the quirky sci-fi setting of Fear Agent. Fear Agent is finally back and in fine form. Just expect to be depressed, rather than amused, by the events of this issue. Read Full Review
