    A notable point of interest for the first Cape series was its penchant for unexpectedly gruesome violence. A bear hasn't been dropped on anyone yet, but this issue features a tense scene that earns its disturbing-factor through the pure obscurity of the situation. Even better, Ciaramella's writing somehow makes the use of an F-bomb feel like the most genuine response Captain Chase could have to his weird predicament. It's that little piece of magic that I was hoping for, and the creators have delivered. Read Full Review

    I'm a sucker for Vietnam War stories. If you are, too, you'll enjoy - but I can't say it's bringing anything new to the genre, even with its supernatural twist. However, any fan of the original mini-series should certainly check it out for the answers it promises. Read Full Review

    "The Cape 1969" #2 is the issue that brings everything together after the introductory issue established the story and characters. The fight here is gritty and brilliant but still feels like a pre-cursor to the big switch up of the flight ability finally entering the story as a major player. Next month is going to be a real opportunity for this title and these two issues of build certainly bode well enough for them. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of the original series, this is worth the pick up if you want to know the origin of The Cape. Read Full Review
