    Ryan continues to do god's work with his interior monologue of Hobie, as well as the callback to his opening monologue being repeated under different circumstances in the end; it's one of the most unique devices I've ever seen in a comic. Along with Campbell, this team is doing well at character building. Here's hoping this isn't their last book together. Read Full Review

    The still-underdeveloped character of Hobie Brown gets lost amid the chaos of The Clone Conspiracy and overshadowed by Julia Carpenter. As always, however, Jamal Campbell comes to the book's rescue with gorgeous art. Read Full Review

    Bits and PiecesAfter a fascinating start to the series, the Prowler as a stand-alonebook is struggling to find an intriguing conflict for our hero to really sinkhis teeth into.  Combine all that withfighting skills that seem sub-par and an unlikable demeanor, especially thisissue, and this maybe something to avoid until it can steer clear of tie-instatus and truly allow the character to flourish … if it gets that chance.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 28, 2017

    I dunno. This series hasn't done a whole lot with this character or its tie-in status to Clone Conspiracy. The plot with Julia Carpenter makes Hobie to be the bad guy, which is never good. He's actually pretty pathetic this issue. So enamored with the Jackal that he falsely accuses Julia of sabotaging NewU, then he attacks her, then he gets his butt whooped. I really do hope the real Prowler takes over, because Pod Person Prowler kind of sucks. Read Full Review

    It's enough to save this issue, but the narrative needs to start going somewhere if The Prowler is going to transform from a fun diversion into a solid ongoing series. Read Full Review
