Ultimately, this issue is a study of the villain of the piece. Kenji is a damaged and confused soul but that doesn't stop him being incredibly dangerous. This fine line is cut through the issue delicately and it seems the safety of many outweighs that of this one. I think I have a feeling why this comic wasn't called The Five Lights. Gillen and Espin pack this issue densely with great lines and visuals and the result is one of the best continuity comics being produced right now, and certainly one of the best to debut in a long time.

As far as a second issue goes this wasnt bad but regrettably average. Gillen is a writer who has all the tools to deliver truly amazing work much like we have seen in the past. He needs to recapture that magic here because as I stated earlier all the pieces are in place for this to be a really interesting title. Read Full Review

There is promise hidden in random panels throughout this issue, but in the end, I was disappointed. Read Full Review
