    As an opening issue, The 06th Protocol does all the heavy lifting it has to. It does fit in with how a lot of AfterShock's books have felt lately – I need more variety, folks! – but it does it well and provides enough of a hook to make you want to come back more if this kind of story is your thing. Turner's script is pretty efficient while taking moments to breathe but we don't really get to know Cat or Missy all that well here just yet as it has so much ground to cover. Richards' artwork is pretty solid through and through and I like the action sequences as they're pretty clear as to what they're doing. There's just a good bit of exposition going on here after the opening surprise moments and that takes a different approach to get across, which is done well. I'm curious enough to see more.

    Filled with gorgeous art, this debut issue is delightfully tense and harkens back to the best spy thrillers on the market. And of course, there is more than enough gore to go around. Read Full Review
