    The art is still great in this issue as well. The world is an awesome example of Deco-punk (think steam-punk but set between the 20s-50s with an art deco focus) with its era-specific wardrobes and innovative gadgets. Kotz knows how to make a furrowed brow or a dropping of the eyes really help tell a story. Flipping through the panels of this book is like watching a surreal take on The Maltese Falcon, and that's a good thing. Read Full Review

The title's individual issues feel like an entire serial, and in that regard, the decision is most likely intentional. However, modern comic book readers may feel fatigue setting in before they reach each chapter's conclusion. Read Full Review
