    Another great issue - A strong plot coupled with great art work and a very relateable main character. Read Full Review

    For me the dystopian style is a hook, I feel social up rising and injustice are compelling because they mirror some of what is going on today and Daley nails it with his dialog between characters. With the amazing art and completely engrossing story I have maybe been overly pleased with this book but I can say for sure that issue three is on my pull list and I hope that it has a nice run.

    If you haven't had a chance to discover the gritty darkness of Lantern City, now is the time to get on board. I have a feeling that soon, an unwilling hero will arise. Read Full Review

    It's not breaking any new ground " and at times seems unaware of how derivative it is " but it's fun, and worth getting in on early, before too much backstory piles up. Read Full Review

    Still digging this series. I feel for Sander. I really do. He never wanted any of this and yet suddenly here he is elbow to elbow with the bad guys. I'm just interested to see where things go from here. Still waiting on a bit more world building but it seems sure to come! Read Full Review

    For me I'm out after this issue. It's not terrible, but it's predictable and I personally have no interest in reading a story that's entire plotline is based on luck and coincidence because that's the very definition of convenient storytelling. Sander should have been discovered in the first five minutes of his mission and if the story wanted to be impressive it would have found a better way to overthrow the antagonist. As it stands it's creating a series of difficult situations just to thrill the reader with the question of "will he be discovered?" and the answer is of course going to be "No" because otherwise the story would be over. Again, definition of convenient writing. Read Full Review
