Image's hit new ongoing series wraps the first arc with a bang. Jack's got a briefcase of secrets to deliver, some hard men on his tail, and his past coming back to haunt him. If you like future noir spy stories with accents of romance, comedy, and revenge, the end of our first arc is for you.

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Aug 14, 2018

    In this conclusion of the arc, there is the same level of action, if not more so, and a very satisfying and surprising twist at the end that feels entirely earned. Anyone looking for a noir-ish take on the travails of or times need look no further than Analog. Read Full Review

    Making these deliberate creative choices shows that Duggan really is enjoying the story he is creating and if it were in another book, I don't know if they would be as enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Aug 18, 2018

    Another stylish edition of this book, a little bit more on the interesting pre-story, and the usual fun and excitement of the contemporary story and the tug of war between analog and digital. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Zarik Khan Aug 17, 2018

    Analog wraps up its first arc with some great revelations, more zany fight sequences, continued sociopolitical commentary and more world building and character introductions. The dialogue and character motivations sometimes leave a bit to be desired, but this is still phenomenal storytelling. This has gone from what originally seemed like a story doomed to descend to derivative violence/action into a thought-provoking adventure that will keep you guessing what (and who) is next.

    My one caveat with the issue is the pacing is slightly off as compared to previous installments but overall I greatly enjoyed it and continue to enjoy this story. If you have yet to pick it up and I recommend it. I look forward to what is next for Jack in the upcoming story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Aug 18, 2018

    Like being clubbed over the head with a bottle of Scotch, Analog #5 is a refreshing take on an old noir standby. Read Full Review

    It's the best installment in the series so far, but that's still not high praise. Read Full Review
