Damn, this was worth the 4.99 price tag, and probably my favorite 5 dollar book. Kaare Andrews is one hell of a good artist, I took a moment to really appreciate the cover. I guess this book is necessary on behalf of the first marvel flop being the inhuman series. Donny Cates is the hero marvel needs.

Wow so I really enjoyed this comic, the main story feels intense and I can’t wait for #4. -1 for the first half of the comic. Not to say it was bad, I felt the back story was touching however the political overtones felt forced. I get this book has a multiple messages and themes, its just seems to be trying a bit too hard. +1 for the Bullit inspired cover!!

So the sophomore effort got a bit weird. I’m enjoying this story, and I really like Glory. Dark is fine with me, and I liked the ending but on the same token being edgy for what seems like “the sake of trying to be edgy’ drops the book -2.
