It's Cain versus Abel in a showdown for the salvation of New York City. The cat-and-mouse chase comes to its crescendo as the two killers come face to face. But who will have the edge? The Black Forest program trained them both to be ruthless assassins, but after all these years out of the game, Abel may have gone soft. Then again, Cain may have given his rival more reason to fight than he even knows.

    Not only is the action in this series great each issue, butthe story progression and character work feels genuine and natural. Usingflashbacks to tell part of the story can be tricky, but Justin Jordan fusestogether flashbacks and current story seamlessly. This is the most fun I've hadreading a book in a long time.

    The only question now, even more so than "what happens now?" is "when does the Savage Things movie go into production?" Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Bill Bodkin Sep 7, 2017

    Betrayal, action, even a totally stereotypical both guys flying horizontally through the air and shooting at each other moment. Which I loved. And it didn't have the clich everyone goes home happy ending either. However, Abel was all proud of himself for saving the city from bombs"and then he shoots down a helicopter"straight down into the city"so like"that kind of backfired, right? That was exactly what you were trying to prevent! Still, an excellent issue that you should make sure you don't miss out on. Read Full Review

    Overall this was a good issue that manages to slow the pace of the series a little. The reader can get their breath back as they learn some important parts of the backstory before the big finale. Read Full Review
