    The art of Pablo Raimondi does a great job of capturing the darker elements of this issue's plot, while at the same time he's also quite effective when it comes to the delivery the visual gags of the story, such as the scene where Jamie's power surfaces during the opening fight. There's also a pretty cute display of dark humour as we see the assassin is called while in the middle of an assignment. The art also does some nice work when it comes to the facial expressions of the characters, from Jamie's look of frustration as one of his dupes points out that they're committing an illegal act, to his pained expression on the final pages when one of his dupes is killed. There's also a number of fun little details from the varied expressions on the dupes' faces as Jamie clambers up them, to the newspaper headline on the security guard's paper. Read Full Review

    The assassin is deadly, and when he targets one of the multiple Madroxes, the question becomes, just which one is the copy, after all? Endless permutations possible on this concept, and an interesting plot challenge in that the main character can easily be two or more places at once. Not sure when David will have room for this supporting cast with so many leads, but this launch is an entertaining yarn already. Read Full Review

    Out of all the stand alone hero series that Marvel has at the moment (and they do have a lot, don't they?) this is clearly one of the better ones on the shelves. If you can find the first one I would recommend to you that you pick up the rest of this series if you are looking for something a little more light hearted and fun. Read Full Review
