Murdered prince. Hungry mermaids. Vengeful queen. Plentiful suspects. Dead assassin. Dying Black Cloak. So far this case is going to the devils. And it's super great that absolutely everything is on the line. No pressure!

    Perhaps it's got to do with the series' double-sized debut, but Black Cloak #2 feels both overstuffed and truncated. Read Full Review
