    Once again, Higgins and Clark have nailed a very sharp story that manages to resonate even though its telling the type of artists journey that has been delivered to page, stage, and screen countless times before. The distinct package thats being delivered by Higgins and Clark feels quite refreshingly unlike anything else thats currently on the comics rack. Read Full Review
