    Comic Crusaders - Antonio Rodriguez Mar 6, 2024

    In conclusion, is this a title to look out for? Heck yeah! It's written by McFarlane, and it's a Sam and Twitch joint. This is going to be an interesting read, but for established fans of the detectives, this could take a little time to get used to. It feels a lot more serious than previous entries, and while Sam and Twitch have always been serious characters, the semi-realistic art style and movie-esque panels and lettering push to read this less like a comic and more like a movie storyboard. Bear that in mind as you pick this up next from your local comic book store. Read Full Review

    SAM AND TWITCH CASE FILES #1 offers a gripping introduction to a world of crime and corruption, showcasing the complex dynamics between its titular characters. While the storys pacing may falter at times, its atmospheric storytelling and compelling character dynamics make for an engaging read. With the promise of future investigations and the potential for deeper narrative exploration, this comic sets the stage for an intriguing series. Read Full Review

    Sam and Twitch: Case Files #1 is a somewhat slow start to the latest entry in the Spawn universe. While longtime Spawn fans will probably pick it up, others may want to check out the duo's previous appearances or wait for other Spawn titles that are more their speed. Read Full Review

    If you really need a Sam and Twitch fix, you're better off picking up the old Bendis/Maleev issues from the 1990s. At least, the dialogue will be better. Read Full Review

    Even knowing who Sam and Twitch are in the larger Spawn universe, this new series starring the characters is off to an almost abysmal start. Read Full Review

    This is why I love comics and I'm not going to lie when it gave me a deep satisfaction at why in the right hands adult comics can work. The art was wonderful as it brought a level of realistic flavour to my eyes that are missing theses days. The script was fun but the ending hit all the high notes that's needed in a monthly comic and the splash pages were so glorious that you could actually visualise seeing them first hand. Awesome start to hopefully a long long run

    Good start for the series. I'm a fan of these characters from the Spawn series, and I also read the old series of the two detectives. Now we have a new series, with a realistic drawing and a solid first issue. Detective Sam Burke makes a mistake by not controlling his anger and punching an informant. the boss suspends Sam and also his Twitch partner. Elsewhere, police discover several mutilated bodies in a rural area. A former Twitch colleague calls him for help. he needs Detective Max Williams, aka Twitch, as he has a reputation for being very smart. He needs Twitch to help him with the case of the murders. Sam and Twitch's friendship relationship is in a bad moment, I hope that in the next issues they will reconcile. In issue 2, the inves more

    Seems fine for what it is. I don't love the way the dialogue is lettered.

    I don't know the first thing about these two detectives and only picked this up on a whim because of the low price but it's not terrible. The biggest problem I have with it was the lack of speech bubbles and the white background that comes with them. Here they choose to go without and the words are just written over the background which is jarring to say the least. It's much harder to read this way and just seemed to distract from the experience of the book more than anything. Other than that this comic is fine. Nothing special but the final pages promise a bloody good time in future issues.
