The police are looking for him. Government operatives are hunting him down. And Cole Cash can hear the voices of an alien race in his head. Escaping New Orleans will require quick thinking and a violent streak straight out of Cole's Special Operations background and just like that, his life will be turned upside down, figuratively as well as literally.

    Aside from the continuity error, this is another well done issue of Grifter. It contains all the elements that were enjoyable and interesting about the first issue and simply enhances the story a little bit further. I think this series still has a lot of promise especially with the military conspiracy entering into the fold. The writers just need to be more cautious about continuity. Contradicting previous events will make me drop a series real fast and I won't look back. Read Full Review

    The series definitely shows signs of gaining momentum as a pure thriller. It hasn't exactly sold its plot as the most original, but it spins the clichs pretty well. Read Full Review

    Grifter #2 is a notably more enjoyable experience than the last time around, but it'll need to bring attention to the character himself if it's going to remain so. Read Full Review

    "Grifter" is a fun little thriller; it's not high art or deep thinking, but it's not trying to be. It is, however, entertaining and a good ride so far. If Edmondson and CAFU can keep up the adrenaline levels, that will do me just fine. I'm ready to hit the ground running for "Grifter" #3. Read Full Review

    Overall, a good issue, but I didnt think it was a great issue. It seems to be setting up a lot so Im really anticipating the payoff here. But ultimately, isnt that what a good creative wants is to make you want to come back and read more? Read Full Review
