A book with potential but it'll take a few issues to ultimately decide. Engaging, readable art from Underwood and decent dialogue from the reliable Thompson.

An incredible debut solely focusing on the struggles of the rights of creators and how they're treated in the mainstream. Hilarious how Chip jabs at Marvel Studios specifically and their historical treatment of the characters' creators. Obviously, this was the book made in lieu of fairly recent controversy and I'm absolutely here for it.

Tyler Crook continues to deliver the goods with one of the best of 2022. A fascinating protagonist who possesses a degree of heroism but is far from the classic hero archetype. The murky watercolours we know from Harrow County work equally well here. A must have.

It was enjoyable, but very steep at $9.99. I've always been a fan of Ed McGuinness's art but he really needs Dexter Vines as his inker to deliver the goods. Murky watercolour effects suit many independent comics in the crime and horror genre but it doesn't really work in the superhero world. Backups were pointless, although I'm always happy to see the master of minimalism, Marcos Martin, even i more
