    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 25, 2022

    Heavy conversations between people who know more about current events and the truth? This tends to be the type of thing that works better with actors. In the course of the 18 issues of the series, Tynion, Simmonds, and company have solidly delivered a story that has a very distinct pulse and mood that wouldnt feel quite right in any other format.

A great deal of that has to do with Simmonds specific vision, which works quite well in the 18th issue of the series. Read Full Review
