    Word Of The Nerd - Kevin Given Jul 7, 2016

    There hasn't been a great detective comic like Midnight of the Soul, that I know of anyway, in a long time. It was a refreshing read after all the superhero comics on the market. Our hard hearted anti-hero goes through the maze of taking a case that has personal ramifications for him. Detective Breakstone starts to question the victims neighbors only to be given the cold shoulder by a potential witness named Deidre. Once she realizes that he's a detective and that his wife was having an affair with the victim, she begins to warm up to him, though she does reprimand him for his drinking. Breakstone seems surprised that she knows he'd been drinking and swears to himself to lay offthe liquor store for a while. He discovers a cigar box behind a secret panel that has the evidence he's looking for and this leads him into an even worse part of town than the body was discovered in. We'll have to wait until next issue to find out what that evidence was. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Aaron Reese Jul 11, 2016

    This issue added intrigue that promises action soon. It wasn't as entertaining or as illuminating as the previous issue. However, it breathed life into the characters surrounding Joel and wove a few new threads into the narrative. A few questions pop up in this issue that should have interesting answers. How will Joel behave when he sobers up? Is Patricia a femme fatale or damsel in distress? How will the crime boss deal with the problems made by this murder? The story slowed, but didn't lose me.

    This is a great story about one man trying to overcome his inner demons and get his life together—starting with his relationship. Honestly, at this point, I don’t even know if Patricia is good for Joel, but I want him to be happy. He’s been through a lot of Hell, and it’s about time life eased up on him. Keep reading to see if Joel is able to bounce back from his isolation and alcoholism! Read Full Review
