    A nice ending to a strong Incognito story. It nicely sets up the next story and I'll be looking forward to seeing that in a year or so. Read Full Review

    I drew a comparison to Criminal at the beginning of the review, but unfortunately even when Incognito captivates and has us solidly cheering on our anti-hero, I feel like it has yet to deliver as satisfying an experience as Criminal's dark noir fare. Zack Overkill drives Incognito, and his story has been enough to suggest the series to others. But make no bones about it, if you're looking for Ed Brubaker's top crime series, it's Criminal. Still, as long as he continues to stagger volumes of Incognito and Criminal you'll never hear us complain. Read Full Review

    While this has been a good series, this issue felt a little off to me. But dont let me discourage you from checking it out when it comes to hardcover, because you definitely should. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Apr 2, 2011

    "Incognito: Bad Influences" is a good comic that suffers for being a sequel to a great comic. This comic gets us to some good places, and the ending is a great noir send off, but the pieces don't add up to the whole. It's only at the end that I really care and want more and that's far too late. This has been fun, and should be a quality read in trade, but the final issue doesn't finalize everything perfectly; It just drops you in the boiling water to sizzle for a while. Read Full Review
