    The artwork byCrizam Zamora is superb and detailed. Even the flying “machine,” seen in the early panel is well detailed and shares a degree of realism. In contrast to this, the arcane part of the story is colorful, almost alive in nature. That gives a nice balance compared to the cold nature of the machines that are seen throughout world.

    Precinct #2 turns up the dial with more action, magic, and now even political intrigue. Found a steady pacing for the stories development, and gave us enough to start building our own predictions on just what is going on behind the scenes. Read Full Review

    This issue is a great addition to the series. The plot should start to get really intense from here. I’m most curious about how the Academy will go about regulating the steam in the city. Steampunk is a really great genre, especially for a comic book. The visuals as well as the societal functions make this series an awesome read. Check it out as soon as you can! Read Full Review

    The Precinct #2 moves our story forward in a bold engaging fashion, giving us some exciting moments along the way. The creative team also use the steampunk element of this tale to perfection, and although there are some pacing issues throughout, the issue as a whole does more than enough to come recommended.

    The Precinct has a decent follow-up issue that pushes us a bit further down the path, but I'm not exactly trusting the path at the moment. There is a superficiality to the cast that I expect with any miniseries and that doesn't bother me since I like the general setup, the dynamic of the characters, and what it's attempting to do. The story is straightforward and I'm just waiting for a twist at this point. Zamora's artwork continues to be solid for the property as it brings it to life and I'm rather liking that Mort really is played as the broken and gruff old cop instead of having two pretty characters running around doing things. The book has a good flow about it and for fans of the genre it hits the right points I think without going so far into it that it could turn away casual readers. Read Full Review
