Our deadly, psychotic, bloodthirsty hero is dead. Who will save us now?

    While the story may be strange, the artwork byDaniel Warren Johnson is not. It does serve the purpose in spades, of amplifying the strangeness of the story. The amount of small details put into the background, is impressive. Read Full Review

    Alabaster: The Good, The Bad, and The Bird #2 is what I would expect from a second issue in a limited series. Issue one started off very strong and grand, whereas the second issue slows in its pace and scale but progresses the story and that's all you could really want from another issue. It does feel a bit disjointed from where we left Maisie and where we find her in #2; that said, Kiernan and Johnson use this issue however to build a very compelling Maisie. With what seems to be coming for Maisie in the coming issues I appreciate being able to become invested in her before it's too late. Read Full Review
