    One central question remains – can this series continue to deliver the same high quality of cloak and dagger stories without Rucka involved? With the superb Queen and Country series already on his long list of credits, it's obvious that few writers have the same knack for meticulously plotted and intelligently characterized spy dramas that Rucka is known for, so I wouldn't be at all surprised to see this series stumble when Bruce Jones takes over next month. Then again, Rucka (and later, Trauttman) did such a fine job establishing these characters and this world that I can just as easily see this book continue to succeed for years to come. Either way, it's a shame to see Rucka leave. Together, these first twenty-five issues make up one of the best creative runs of the last decade. Read Full Review
