    I really enjoyed this issue, took last issue's promising start and pushed on nicely. It could be accused of being a bit of a slow-burner, as Cartmel and Aaronovitch tease as much as they deliver, but for me that is all part of the charm. Read Full Review

    Compared to the first volume, the art style changes some, as the story itself changes. Unlike the last volume that is more focused on the possessed car this one is more character focused. That seems to bolster the degree of realism, that the world itself has. Even the characters itself seem to be more grounded, in history as they reveal a few backstories. Read Full Review

    The more I read this series, the more I love the urban fantasy style of the artwork by Lee Sullivan. Each issue seems to increase the complexity of the scenes, as they add a more complex environment. The one strange scene I won't spoil, has a detailed, and beautiful execution. Read Full Review

    This comic seems to just assume we all know the backstory and the characters. I don't and there isn't enough for me to make any effort to. Dropped.
