And of course Grist's art is impeccable. He's a master of the clean line style, with the ability (obviously influenced by Alex Toth) to use a minimum number of lines to produce work of startling depth and complexity. The bright coloring in the comic helps even more, as it adds to the feeling that this comic by a British cartoonist is a sort of merger of the best of British and American comics done right. This really is a special comic, one that rewards repeat readings on unexpected levels. Even for an all-out action comic, Jack Staff #12 gives a reader a lot to think about. Read Full Review

This really is a great superhero comic, and if you've not been a reader so far, then you've been missing out. Read Full Review
