    With Newburn #12, a new wrinkle in the status quo of the criminals private detective makes for an excellent pivot as Emily revisits her past. The scripting for the issue forefronts character, letting the mystery take a backseat as detectives and their respective fears and doomed loves take center stage. The compositions and layouts build on that emotional core, highlighting what makes the book such a compelling read month to month. The linework pairs perfectly with the coloring to bolster both the bittersweet romance and explosive action to showcase the books range, selling the shift from breezy victory to desperate corner. Newburn continues to deliver high after high, proving itself to be one of the most consistently rich crime dramas on shelves. Read Full Review

    Newburn #12 delivers the most satisfying sort of single-issue mystery and sets the stage for a series that's about to dramatically turn up the heat on its characters (and readers). Read Full Review
