    Consistently good art is a much sought-after quality, and Simone Guglielmini again delivers a lightly gritty style that showcases Markham's story in detailed settings populated with realistic characters. Markham would fit perfectly in any crime movie as he moves about with stern determination to find redemption. There's a somber scene in a church where he asks a priest for permission to kill a killer, and Guglielmini gives it perfect emotional weight, but also works in a hint of humor on the priest's reaction. It's a nice touch that reflects the drama of the series, but also the inherent humor in the idea of a hitman trying to be a hero. Read Full Review
