    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Mar 1, 2005

    Tony Harris is one of the main reasons why this book is able to sell the illusion that this book is set in the real world, as there's a very human looking quality to his work and even the more intense moments of the issue have that extra level of gravity to them as they maintain the sense that this book is not playing out in some fantasy realm. I mean how can one not love to look of absolute delight on the face of Jackson's wife in the opening sequence, as the art so clearly sells the idea that she really is delighted to meet Hundred? I also loved the skyward look on Todd's face when his better half explains why he's a Republican. However, the most impressive and visually disturbing section of the issue would have to be the absolutely vicious baseball attack that the art delivers in the final pages, as that has to be one of the most frightening visual introductions I've ever seen a villain receive.

    All in all, its another gripping issue from the Ex Machina team, who is crafting a great twisting story here, melding the political and character-based elements of the book with a real paranoid-thriller feel an atmosphere which is reinforced by this months Hitchcock-esque cover. It might not be the most accessible place to start reading the book, but this issue throws up some interesting new revelations for longtime readers and continues to push the plot on to new, interesting places. Definitely worth checking out. Read Full Review
