    Lemire makes it feel as though Spiral City has been around just as long as Gotham, or any other super-city for that matter, by further rooting his characters in a setting that feels at once timeless and currently relevant, while Zonjic presents some of his most inventive colors to help emphasize the warm heart and chilly soul of this story.

    While the six or so months between issues don't do the book any favors, most of those reading it will ease back into it without hardly an issue. The script here makes it even more accessible as it deals with flashback material at first and then reconnects in the present. Lemire's script is definitely a lot of fun and hits some sweet moments here while Zonjic's artwork is dynamic to watch play out with rooftop fights, darkened room moments, and just the look of the costumes through the color design employed. It's a great book that I'm looking forward to the final two issues that are on their way. Read Full Review
