    With only three cases solved, Zdarsky and Phillips have proven that Newburn is more than an interesting premise masquerading as a procedural. With a willingness to embrace the formal aspects of the genre, while still subverting expectations, Newburn feels right at place in Images renaissance of crime comics. While some elements of Zdarksy's scripting feel a little unpolished, it's clear that the book is already close to the top of its game and belongs on any crime fan's shelf. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Feb 5, 2022

    Newburn #3 is a solid neo-noir story that pits bad guy vs bad guy in a tense situation with some real stakes for the characters. Some poor writing choices tarnish this a little, but it's still enjoyable. Read Full Review
