"THE DEAL," Part One
There were seven, possessing the power of gods, and representing all that could be right with the world. But now... he is the Last. As humanity stands on the brink of annihilation, he is our only hope. And he hates us for what we've done. From the Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated writer of ECHOES, Tumor and Elk's Run comes a dynamic new take on how far mankind will stoop to survive.

    As for the art of The Last of the Greats #1, Brent Peeples' pencils have a very classic feel to them. He also supplies some solid splash pages and spreads in this issue. I think Peeples has a bright future ahead of him, as his superhero-centric work is quite strong. Read Full Review

    Last of the Greats does have potential but if the second issue doesnt deliver something to piqued interests then I dont think many people will follow this book to find out. Read Full Review
