When there are only villains, being a hero makes you a...SUICIDE RISK. After barely surviving a super-powered bank heist gone horribly wrong, beat cop Leo Winters vowed to try and find a way to stop them. Following a lead, he discovered two lowlifes who seemed to be able to grant a person powers...for the right price.

    It's a very cerebral issue but the plot still moves forward and keeps you gripped to the very last panel. Elena Casagrande's artwork suits the story nicely. Particularly impressive is her use of force lines to illustrate the usage of powers. Read Full Review

And when it comes to down to the essential parts of an entertaining comic, what else do you really need? Now let's just pray for the return of Extended Remix. Read Full Review
