    The story by James Tynion IV is really great. Tynion really does a great job of scripting this to perfection. I very much enjoyed where we ended up by the end of the issue. I am intrigued to see if the quality stories on this book can possibly continue. Read Full Review

    The world that Tynion is building is fascinating. It would really need to dive in to embrace the art a bit more to be totally satisfying in comic book format, but its solidly entertaining as is.

    This issue deals with cryptids and how Bigfoot and his ilk are actually a lot more dangerous than what they let on. It's an interesting issue, one of the better books in this series. Read Full Review
