She was kidnapped and taken to the worst place on earth. He was hired to get her out. Now, they’re both trapped in a city that wants them both dead, and their hopes of getting out are fading fast. From the bloodthirsty criminals, to the corrupt police, to the kid hiding a Glock under his sweatshirt on the corner, everyone wants Tyler Rake and Eva Roche dead.

Set in the real world locale of Ciudad del Este, Ciudad explodes with breathtaking action and hyper violence from critically acclaimed writer Ande Parks [Capote in Kansas, Union Station], writer/directors Joe & Anthony Russo [Captain America: The Winter Soldier], and artist Fernando León González!

    It's an entertaining book full of gun play and over the top personalities. It's not a story that you go in expecting deep character development, but our characters do grow ever so slightly. The bulk of the story is based around the action which is something it does very well. Read Full Review

    Ciudad kicks things off with a lot of action and works through it in a solid way without going overly big or unrealistic with what it does. In fact, it looks a lot like storyboards overall for a movie as the action tracks and it gives off the sense of the opening act of a film. That's both good and bad as we get some solid action to it and a good sense of space and movement, but it also comes across as weak as there's not enough to really hook you here. While it is a five part series and it has a beginning, middle and end to it with its entire run, the beginning doesn't offer anywhere near enough of a hook to really draw you in to wanting to read more of it, even with the talents involved.
