Cole and his new partner Sofia make plans to escape the northwest, but first they need a little cash and that calls for a quick grift. Cole can't get far in his con-artistry, however, before discovering that the Daemonites are coming after him in full force and they have powers he could not have anticipated.

    For those who thought the first few issues of Grifter were a little slow, give these last two a try. For one thing, you will get a lot more action and get a deeper view of what the Daemonites are up to. The solicits show that Edmondson and Clark should be working together on the title for the next few months. I anticipate the issues can only get better from here. Read Full Review

    While the general tone and idea of the series works, the actual story parts needs serious development. If the climax of this arc fails to capture my loyalty, I'll regretfully have to consign this title to the Dropped List. Read Full Review

    For a book that held the highest of potential with integrating one of Wildstorm's most beloved icons, Grifter has been consistently falling short of expectations all around. Read Full Review

    The art is good, the writing is good, the character is really cool, but this story is dull. Alongside that, everything else about this book is "blah," like a McDonald's Cheeseburger at 2A.M. after a long night of drinking. In concept, it's a great idea, but halfway through, you'll wish you made yourself a bowl of cereal at home. This is far from the worst of the New 52, but it's also far from the best. I do not recommend this issue. Here's to hoping the next story is a good one. Read Full Review
