    Leonard Kirk is also doing some of the best work of his career. With this series, his style shows hints of Brian Hitch and Alan Davis, and there's no way that can be taken as a bad thing.

If the company is still trying to avoid footnotes wherever possible, this is a good substitute. Read Full Review
