    The issue culminates with a brutal, bloody prison brawl between Mako and Dragon that spans several pages and some foreshadowing for the return of a few familiar villains (with one of them staking a claim as leader of the Vicious Circle Gang.) 8.0 Crisp, attractive art by Larsen as is custom.Brutal fight scene between Mako and Dragon.Won't take much more than 5-10 minutes to read.

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Aug 14, 2013

    There are also two short stories at the end, both written by Larsen and drawn by Frank Fosco and Scott James. Both stories were entertaining and allows Larsen to showcase some of the more creative and fun characters he's created over the years. Larsen fills this issue with a lot of story, and you get your money's worth. If you've never picked up an Erik Larsen book before, his art style and fast paced writing may not be for everyone. But for me who has not kept up with this book in quite a while, it felt good to give it another try, and remember just why I enjoyed his work so much in the past. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Aug 15, 2013

    Larsen makes jumping in a bit easier here with some dialogue lines that ease transition. Meanwhile, Larsen's art, while flat in places, really pops in the action scenes. Dragon and Mako wail on each other in panel after panel of brutal punches filled with energy from speed lines. This is a multi-month investment, but one worth looking into. Read Full Review

    Blood is in the water of the prison where the Savage Dragon is being held and Mako is on the hunt. Erik Larsen puts on a hell of a show with some solid themes after fixing some of the issues I had with last months issue. Read Full Review

    All in all, this issue feels a little like filler, but it's good filler. At the very least its an enjoyable read that seems to be going somewhere. Read Full Review
