Dig deeper into the bloodstained history of the Raths, an Alabama family caught in a generational cycle of violence. Are all members of this clan of killers cursed to live and die by the sword, or can one of them break the chain?
This issue has not one, but two graphic scenes of animal brutality as well. After last issue's killing of a baby, and now the animal stuff, it just seems too easy for me. Blood and guts do not necessarily equal excitement, and in my opinion it's just too gratuitous here. Not only that, but right when we almost start to care for Ruben, he abandons a moment that might have made him a characterto root for and instead he becomes another louse in a long line of no-good Wraths. This might be interesting as a study of your own family tree, but as a comic book it just doesn't do much for this reviewer. Read Full Review
