    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Dec 2, 2014

    To do justice to the ideas behind this series, it would seem like there should have been at least six issues invested in the idea. It is almost forgotten that in the first issue that Adam was some kind of Occupy-movement Robin Hood type of character, but that has been all but forgotten here, and its role in his own character development is at this stage somewhat pointless. So too are the action sequences out of place here, or at least in the quantity that they exist. While it is necessary to show Evy as an equal to Adam in almost every way, the precious space for this series is lost as character development is traded for flash, and it ends up being to the detriment of the story. As a series, this issue ends up being a good representation of what it did. It showed some potential and even had some fun moments, but ended up missing out on most of what it was trying to capture.

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Dec 4, 2014

    Perhaps if Cloaks gets another miniseries, things will pick up now that the characters have started to acquire some personality. Even if it featured the second coming of Houdini though, I don't think anything less than having my body sawed in half and the upper part forced to read through the next volume would convince me to give it a shot.
