The largest retailer in the world requires the best-trained loss prevention staff, and Security Officer Nussbaum defends the company interests at any cost.

    Kindlon can come up with some crazy stories and turns amid the plot which is one of the reasons I really liked his last series with AfterShock. Shoplifters Will Be Liquidated is off to a fun start here as it throws us into a crazy world and then zags when you're expecting a zig. Simeone's artwork is pretty solid here, though I'm not too keen on his vision of Nussbaum, as the world has the right kind of big and crazy about it and the blue hues are really slick. I'm definitely curious as to what the new world Nussbaum is entering is going to be like and there's a lot of appeal in exploring whatever else it is that this team really has in store.

    There are plenty of good ideas in here, and the beginnings of what could be an intriguing new series. For me though, the story and pace just never seemed to click into gear. The reveal at the end left me unsure of where this is heading, and it feels like it could be quickly moving away from the original premise. Read Full Review
