    It will be interesting to see where the story takes the brothers. Damaged is slated to run for a total of six issues, which is a little longer than most of the earlier Radical series, but has become more commonplace of late with series such as Earp and Abattoir. If you liked Earp, or any of the many Michael Mann crime dramas like Collateral, Heat, or Miami Vice, then Damaged is for you. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jul 27, 2011

    Leonardo Manco's gritty, dark style is a nice choice for this crime drama, and I was pleased to get a chance to sample his work again. It's much cleaner and more defined in Damaged than past projects, such as the Westerns he's done, which boasted rough, loose linework that worked well with the subject matter. Here, there's more of a painted look at play, which is in keeping with the general house style for Radical titles. Again, as with the script, it was Frank's depiction in the artwork that I enjoyed the most about Manco's effort on Damaged. He also does a great job with the backgrounds. There's a sense that the events are unfolding in real places, making it easier to commit to the plot and premise. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Aug 18, 2011

    "Damaged" has laid all of its pieces out now and it's a decent tale. The characters don't jump off the page but they keep the pages turning. With the origin out of the way, this book can easily turn a corner and deliver some thrills in future issues. For now, there's some glorious pages of nasty violence and some characters who feel familiar and easy to watch. If you're up for some slick action and a revenge tale decades in the making then this is an enjoyable book. Read Full Review

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it, I suppose. That said, this was pretty derivative. Read Full Review
