    On paper Finney and Henry seem diametrically opposed, but the best part of Stockman's art is that it highlights their shared struggles. Both characters are overwhelmed with stress: it shows in their faces and the way their shoulders hang just enough to show their growing weariness. It also provides the necessary pathos to keep Finney from being a character that isn't completely shameful. Stockman, along with colorist Paul Little, manages to keep a talking-heads issue lively through great use of body language, facial expressions, and bold coloring. If you have a dollar to spare, Anti-Hero #1 is definitely worth every penny. Read Full Review

How much can an unbreakable man bend? Anti-Hero #1 raises these questions and more, and I intend to keep on reading to get answers. Jay Faerber and Monkeybrain Comics have me hooked!
