    Reading this comic is like stepping back in time to the 90's, but the better part of the 90's. It shows promise for a future series which needs to develop its characters and solve some of the mysteries set down by this issue. The premise is great, with mediocre art that still fits the mood well but could be better. If you do pick up this issue you will feel compelled to at least pick up the next to get answers, if nothing else. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, Mysterious Ways doesnt really do enough of anything. I do think it will improve as more is revealed, but it should have started with more purpose to really grab the readers attention. Read Full Review

    The story and dialogue are bad, so how's the art? Tyler Kirkham has drawn plenty of fine-looking comics. No, this is not one of them. Instead we have a juxtaposition of styles, all drawing from some of the least-attractive stylistic crutches from each artistic inspiration. Tons of cross-hatching seems to draw inspiration from the work of David Finch. Some of the exaggerated body design has a strong Todd McFarlane influence. Much of the perspective and depth of field is off and the main penciling influence that comes to my mind is Stephen Platt. Like I said, this book belongs in the early to mid '90s.Bottom Line: Save Your $3.99 Read Full Review
