Wyrd #1

By: Curt Pires, Antonio Fuso

There are problems, cases, too strange for US law enforcement to solve. Pitor Wyrd is the one who solves them-for a fee, of course. An unaging, invincible detective with a penchant for the strange, Wyrd is the one the government calls when things go very badly and very strange.

Dialogue is clunky. The main character is American but talks like a Brit. Story is ok and is supposed to grab fans of action comics but the last three pages have nothing to do with anything else and are there to give background on Wyrd but it's just thrown in and doesn't have a connection to anything. Writing was poor in my opinion. I will not be continuing with this.

Great! Not necessarily a proper team up book but a nice teaser of what could be. Ewing and Bennett are quickly becoming a great duo. I just wish i had more pages for better delivery. Could have been another 5 series mini to delve into all the angles.

Well, unsurprisingly, Al Ewing nailed it. The mystery is explained and Strange's plan works magnificently. I think they did something special with this series. I hope we get more cool things like this in the future.
