Aaron is one of the best writers working in comics today, and he brings along his frequent penciller Ron Garney for the ride. This is Garney's first foray into a creator owned series and he comes through with typical strong work. His style is a bit grittier than his superhero work, and it fits the subject matter perfectly. Aaron, much like his work in Southern Bastards, examines family lineage, and a constant cycle of violence that has been passed down for generations in the Rath family, with Ruben being the possible break in that chain. First, he has to make sure his dad doesn't kill him though, and therein lies the rub. Read Full Review
This third chapter holds my interest, which is commendable because many midway parts are basically the least interesting or downright boring of the entire story. But the creative team makes sure our interests remain high and keeping our momentum to the last two issues. However, I cannot say this one is the most memorable due to the fact that is storyline is a bit clich already (father-and-son rivalry, and a family curse are nothing novel actually). BUT, this is still a great read due to the team's near-flawless execution. Unless with some of those who familiar with; the Southern dialogue and accent used in this issue can be a nuisance for some readers that demands a couple of rereading to understand its context. Other than some minor flaws, the third issue is a great link to the previous introductory chapters and to the highly anticipated final moments of the cursed Rath brood. Highly recommended!
