The pre-Batman years of Alfred Pennyworth are chronicled in this smash-hit series.

    The penultimate chapter in this series is expertly crafted by Wilson. Now that the backstory is mainly completed, this issue takes place mostly in the present. I was really impressed by the explosiveness of the story and the intense action. There is an emotional connection I have to Alfred and his feelings towards the supporting characters that has built up since the first issue, and I am thankful that the writing in this series has led me to such feelings.

    Amid the crazy spycraft, there is a strong emotional core that makes it easy for us to relate to Alfred and get invested in his battleeven if he still feels like an odd fit for the sci-fi story about supersoldiers. Read Full Review

    This is a great series and it definitely isn't going the way I thought it was going to. Wilson's smashing it with the plot and the artistic team of Gedeon and Rauch seem like they can do no wrong. The spy thriller comes to an end in the next issue and I have no idea what's about to happen! How exciting. Read Full Review
