    If you're not reading this already, even if you have no idea who Rush are (ask your dad), any fans of well-written fantasy books need to be picking this up. Read Full Review

    The star of this series though is artist Nick Robles. His art is deliciously steampunk and fans of the genre should take note of this series. Read Full Review

    The art was again just as good if not better than the story, as I wouldn't want to read this book with any other artist. Crown City is brought to life through the off-kilter people that Owen talks to, the beautiful yet odd buildings and structures, and the aforementioned alchemical substance that fuels the city. My only critique for this book so far is that it's a head-scratcher to me how the Anarchist hasn't been caught yet. He doesn't have any real type of disguise-he just wears glasses sometimes but has other features that make him stand out like a sore thumb. It doesn't seem realistic to me that he can cause this much havoc in a city where everything is watched with Big Brother-esque vigor and not get caught already. That said, Clockwork Angels is gearing up to be one of my favorite mini-series this year has to offer. Read Full Review

    "Clockwork Angels" remains a fascinating project with a charming aesthetic, but it needs a firmer grip on its plot. Right now, I can't determine what drives the story from one scene to the next, other than mechanics. Until it's clearer what the creative team wants to accomplish, my appreciation for the series may remain aesthetic. Read Full Review

    Just as the protagonist of Kevin J. Anderson's Clockwork Angels listlessly traverses through the plot, so too do we as we read through the issue. Read Full Review

    I wish good things for this comic, I want it to grab ahold of the genres it is toying with and play to their strengths. I want it to make me think. I want it to give me chills. And maybe it will in the future. But for now, Ill have to be content with its simplistic and dry storyline. Read Full Review
