    In short, this is a stellar first issue for Greg Hurwitz. I'm already feeling a bit despondent that Foolkiller will only last five issues. It ain't the most original book on the block, but a bloody hand down a garbage disposal never felt so good. Read Full Review

    So all in all, this is worth taking a look at, so long as you can stomach some pretty graphic violence. The writing is a nice workmanlike start that could easily turn into something very disturbing and good. It could also go the other way, though, and probably just as easily. The art is the real star of this first issue, with a very distinctive look and realistic to the point of distraction at times. It might not be for everyone, especially if you dont like the kind of realism you might find in a Life Drawing class, but Medina makes the grotesque mutilation of fools believable. Im pretty sure thats a good thing. Read Full Review

    I will say the art is excellent. It reminded by of Andy Kuberts work in Wolverine: Origins. Fantastic pencils and coloring. This is a very heavy and realistic book. It doesnt feel like its in a superhero fantasy world but the darker parts of the real world. So its perfectly suited to the tone of the story. Now lets see if the story can live up to that tone.

    I realize Im praising this new comic for something thats not on the page, but that seems true to the nature of this very bizarre and troubling character. Read Full Review

    I dont like what I call Marvels four bucks experiment. I have this strong feeling that Marvel is going to raise the price tag of all their books to $3.99. Why? Just look at Septembers market report: Two $4 Marvel books top the list of best-sellers. So raising the price isnt going to stop readers from buying these comics. I think Marvel is going to test the waters with its Max titles. A cardboard cover, no extras and a pricetag of $3.99. Hey, its for mature readers! Theyve all got jobs, right? They dont care about the extra dollar and the lack of a solid story. Read Full Review
