    One of "Gears"' constant goals, rarely achieved, is to evoke sympathy for these armored hulks, running short on hope and ammunition against enemies with seemingly limitless amounts of both. What "Gears", and Ortega in this comic, does best is creating gripping set pieces of conflict and violence. Watching our heroes jump from one Last Best Hope to the next, their chances at survival and/or victory slimming after every one. No one really cares about Marcus Fenix or Dom Santiago, any more than the fate of John McClane's family keeps anyone up at night. We're in it to watch them drive a taxi through Central Park or, in this instance, cut an obscene amount of giant lizard creatures in half or stuff grenades in their backs. Read Full Review

Something big needs to happen in the next issue to prove that this comic is really something a fan should bother investing in. Read Full Review
