You can't keep a good comic down.

In the 1990s, DEAD EYES was a prolific stick-up man and hoodlum in Boston until he took down one last big score and disappeared. Nobody ever discovered the truth. He retired to be with the love of his life, but now he's back in the mask to save her. No one-not his wife, the mafia, or the cops-is happy that he's out of retirement.

From JOHN McCREA, the artist and co-creator of MYTHIC and Hitman, and GERRY DUGGAN, the writer of ANALOG and DEADPOOL, comes the action, comedy, and drama of Martin Dobbs, a.k.a. DEAD EYES, the man w more

    I looked forward to this comic since it get my attention when some images of the masked man with dead eyes began to be published on social media and I must say it looks great, the character is clearly influenced "The Question" and "Rorschach" and I'm sure that many will enjoy reading this comic as much as I do.

    Dead Eyes #1 is a refreshing twist on the superhero and crime genre in the vain of Image Comics' Kill or Be Killed and The Violent, and it should not be missed! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey Oct 2, 2019

    Dead Eyes #1 is a strong first issue from a great creative team. The cohesion of these four artists when working on this comic is impressive. While the story isn't revolutionary, it is absolutely interesting and worth following to the end. If you're a fan of crime dramas or crime-themed action movies then this will be right up your alley.

    Impulse Gamer - Tory Favro Oct 4, 2019

    This book might not be for everyone but it is certainly for me. The grit and realism make you feel dirty at times and in the mud with Dobbs. It was most certainly an enthralling read and I cannot wait for the next issue to find out more. As an intro book I do feel that it could have been a little longer page count wise but that is hardly a complaint. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Sep 29, 2019

    Re-branded and re-released, Dead Eyes (Formerly Dead Rabbit) is still a magnificent read. Dark, moody artwork and great storytelling make this a funny, entertaining and, in places, hard hitting comic. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Oct 1, 2019

    'Dead Eyes' #1 is an intriguing crime dramedy with a complicated protagonist who's about to get in too deep as he comes out of retirement. All his old foes will be gunning for me which makes this reborn series one to watch. Read Full Review
