    Furthermore, the biggest obstacle for Drake won't be Lupe or Vasquez's men hunting him. Markus and his cronies are priority number one. But they can see every move he makes in Esteban's body because of the Hardcore tech. It seems like an impossible feat. Read Full Review

    As with many second issues the plot isn’t significantly advanced. This seems to be a problem with modern comic books, where writers don’t seem to know quite how to move things on in the second issue. What we get is fine, if a little perfunctory. Using a high speed chase renders some exciting art, but it is all a little underwhelming, as narratively it feels like we’re treading water. I hope that issue three will offer us a little more, or my pull list might become one comic lighter in a month or two.
