    Supercrooks has gone out with a bang. I'll say that. But pick it up yourself. Read Full Review

    Finally Millar provided a way to give his Filipino fans a nod towards the end. Leinil even lent a hand by doing the transalation for that great panel. It's definitely a book worth buying in either singles format or in a collected edition. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Garry Robertson Aug 24, 2012

    A fantastic ending to an awesome storyline. Plenty of humor throughout and brilliantly drawn, Supercrooks is a modern masterpiece. I must give this a 10/10, as it had everything. Read Full Review

    When it’s all said and done, Mark Millar delivers another awesome series and proved that the bad guys can win from time to time. Now hopefully Secret Service will be just as engrossing. This issue gets a rating of 9 and all 4 issues gets an 8 (click here for issue 1, 2 & 3).Also this issue features a little bonus, as Frank Quitely dazzles us with a sneak peek of some rough sketches of his upcoming collaboration with Millar entitled Jupiter’s Children. Enjoy. Read Full Review

    Comicville - Alan Smodic Aug 30, 2012

    This series as a whole is good enough for you to check out. If anything else, a quick read before the eventual movie is a must. Just don't expect anything new or groundbreaking when it comes to the story — I think the movie may hold a little more potential there as it should have more time to develop the heist and push along character relationships.

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Sep 3, 2012

    Yu's gritty style is often over the top, so it makes for a great fit with this material. He brings the goofy gore in a key sequence to life surprisingly well. I honestly can't decide if the scene is in horribly bad taste or if it's morbidly brilliant. There's rarely a strong sense of place throughout the book, but that stems in part from the necessary but implausibly big backdrops in the bad guy's mansion. Sometimes, it's as though the characters exist in a void. Still, Yu brings a lot of energy and edge to the storytelling, and he serves the odder concepts in Millar and Vigalondo's plot adeptly.

    I, for one, would totally pay to see Tom Cruise as a balding Captain America analogue struggling to come to terms with his closet homosexuality. Honestly, who wouldn't? Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 25, 2012

    All in all, this issue is a pretty strong outing overall, with the cliched moments balanced by some very enjoyable work, and solid art throughout. I would have enjoyed a little more differentiation from the source material to make this more than 'Ocean's Eleven with costumes,' but in the long run, Ocean's Eleven with costumes makes for an okay issue.
