John the Bastard is the world's most dangerous supervillain; his name alone has struck fear into the hearts of most heroes for decades. Now John finds himself in the crosshairs of a talented upstart, and only Secret Service protection specialist Ezekiel Sweet can keep John safe from the swarm of psychopaths heading his way. With Sweet a reluctant guardian, a traitor in their midst, and John's skills markedly slipping, who will survive the ultimate showdown? Bastard's Waltz is a super-powered, adult, crime/conspiracy thriller similar in tone to Super-Crooks by Mark Millar mixed with the Clint Eastwood film In the Line of Fire< more

    If I were breaking this down issue by issue, my reviews would be much longer, as my review of the first issue. When it comes to trade, it's better just to tease it a little and get out. Hopefully, I've done just that because this is one of the most entertaining stories I've read all year. It has plenty of surprises and again, was a homage story that didn't get lost in the homage. Agent Sweets and John the Bastard are the stars, and they shine brightly. Read Full Review

    Overall, a compelling action-packed barn burner that will forever change how you look at odd couple stories. The story by Mark Bertolini is layered, compelling and exhilarating. The art by Giovanni Guida is engaging. Altogether, a story you will not soon forget and will have you flipping through it again to see what you may have missed reading the first time.

    Darby Pop are getting into the habit of putting out some thought-provoking books of late. Bastard's Waltz fits their business model perfectly, given that you can't really help but shout for, essentially, the bad guy! At the core of the story is the idea that the characters are true to themselves. It will be fun to see how both John and Ezekiel world views impact and influence each other. Read Full Review
