    With five issues under its belt, Zdarsky and Phillips Newburn is one of the best indie books out at the moment. Its pure procedural storytelling and captivating art packed into 17 pages. Like any good network procedural show, it knows exactly what buttons to push, and never overstays its time. Like Newburn the character itself, the series is a lean, mean crime-solving machine and is a delight to have on a pull list every month. For anyone looking for that fix of smart, concise storytelling and masterful linework, and inspired coloring, Newburn is the perfect series to pick up. Read Full Review
