    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Nov 25, 2020

    The art the colors and the tone of the story are perfectly done. There is a simplicity to the story but it never feels rushed or forgets to keep us engaged. The parable is one that is so incredibly important for our time, remembering that anger is easy and destruction is simple, but it never leads to happiness or joy to the one meting it out. Everything about our current times would be better if people just looked at stories like these and truly took the lessons to heart. Read Full Review
