    If you like your pulp with plenty of hooks and just a touch of steaminess, then Breakneck #1 is the book for you. Armed with a real down-to-earth tone and a tense ticking clock gimmick, Duane Swierczynski, Simone Guglielmini, Raffaele Semeraro, Lovern Kindzierski, and Chris Chuckry hold the Hard Case Crime standard high while also delivering a pretty damn entertaining first issue of a comic. It is win-win for crime and comic fans alike. Read Full Review
