    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 25, 2018

    The second issue continues the story of vengeance and ups the brutal nature of it all. This is a story that's both expected and unexpected at the same time as Red works her way up the chain to find the person(s) who wronged her while searching for her family. By giving us an anti-hero that's rare in a setting that feels even rarer in comics we have a series that takes a story we've seen before and deliver something fresh and new. Read Full Review
