    This Luke Cage arc was great and if you are a fan of Luke Cage or someone who just watched his Netflix series this is the trade for you. It is perfect in tone and art. Walker and Blake make for a solid team. This is not the book for those wanting the fun of the Powerman and Iron Fist series but it develops Cage as more a real character that is round and unique in the Marvel universe.

    This trade gets back to basics with Luke and it is a great jumping on point for any fan who wants to be on the Luke Cage bandwagon. Walker takes a light touch in exploring social issues enough that this book feels real for Cage while also making this a solid superhero story. If you have never read Luke Cage before you will leave this trade ready move forward with us who read all his books including when he lead the Avengers. If you are a longtime fan then this book is great for getting you back into Luke's history while creating some more twists and secrets to uncover.
