    Outright Geekery - Richard Wanderman Jr. Nov 6, 2016

    Whether you like the old noir filmsor the gritty detective novels that inspired themor just like a tightly wound plotline with danger around every corner, this title will whet that whistle. Every speech, every action, seems like a snake coiled up tightly and ready to strike in a frenzy, and when the action does happen it is like the quick flash and bite from that viper. Each step Roy takes into Los Angeles is fraught with peril and we sit on every word, every panel, with anticipation. This is a fine title to follow, my friends, and well worth the read. I'll be here for Issue #3, you can bet on that. Read Full Review

    Superb! The colours are beautiful, the art is distinctive and the world feels vibrant and darkly alive. The story is moving along nicely, lots of characters and you get a sense of everyone being out to get Roy as he investigates this seedy underworld. Some pages are simply fantastic examples of changing the scale of image, when he's driving around in the car it's really exciting, much more than a simple transition location to location. I'm loving the creepy eyes of Roy, and so far the action is excellently handled. Admittedly, the comic is firmly in the noir genre, it's not that experimental in terms of story..but the atmosphere and dialogue fits like a very comfortable glove....I'll be ordering the next issue for sure! Now excuse me, I've got a dark alleyway to slink into... (tips hat)
