    Look, I'm not going to lie to you; I read the comic and was thinking of giving it an overall rating of around 7.5, but then when I started thinking about the issue, and the series in general, I couldn't find anything that justified that score – especially when I enjoyed this more than almost any other comic I've read this week. Sometimes it really pays to think about what you've just read – and when this series is released in trade, I urge you to check it out because it's awesome (but you've got one more issue to wait for before the trade will be collected). Possibly one of the best series from AfterShock right now. Read Full Review
