    There is no remorse in Malcolm's eyes, as he thinks he has killed Simon. The blow-by-blow with Malcolm and Simon kept me right on the edge of my seat! Powerful emotionally charged story! Read Full Review

    The back story for Lightbourne made for some fairly interesting reading, as ever since the name Lightbourne was mentioned in one of the early issues, I've been curious about this partnership, and why Simon was so reluctant to discuss it. On the other hand now that we've gotten a good look at what was behind the curtain I must admit I'm rather disappointed by the ho-hum feel this betrayal has, if it can even be called that. I mean right from the outset Simon's clearly wearing the white hat, while Lightbourne is presented as the evil villain Simon has to foil. I had been hoping for story that was a bit more evenhanded in its presentation of this ill-fated partnership, by having Simon actually play a role in Lightbourne's decent into villainy. As it stands it's hard to work up much interest for this story, as Lightbourne wasn't a good man driven bad due to something Simon did, but rather he was evil entirely of his own volition.

    While not the best issue of Ruse you can certainly do worse. The story is mechanically without flaw, and the artwork still has that typical breathtaking Crossgen illustrative style. Read Full Review
