    If issue 1 indicates the story's quality and execution as we advance, I am all in.

    Tankers #1 is an interesting comic. It has so much going right, it's unfortunate that it doesn't stick the landing. A great concept that skewers its subjects loses its impact with an ending that's far to predictable. There's something that can be read into that but the fact no one mentions the obvious direction feels like an opportunity lost. A few more lines, and the comic would have nailed the humor of it all. I'm hoping the second issue of Tankers surprises me by heading into a different direction but as is, this is a story we've seen before too many times. Read Full Review
