There's a great new review over at Major Spoilers by Stephen Schleicher:
Josh Howard again does an excellent job weaving a tale that is more engaging the further in you get. Unfortunately, this issue was just too short for my taste. When I find something that has great writing, and artwork that I dig, I want to devour every little bit I can.
He's right. It was a little short of my usual page run. I hated doing it, but I felt I needed to end the story there. It was the completion of Asia's first emotional story arc, and all the other characters are right where I need them to be for what comes next. Think of the first two issues as the "pilot." The series really kicks in starting in issue 3.
Keep in mind these are very rough and still in the early stages, and changes are still being made, but I wanted to give everyone a sneek peak at the progess. Overall, it's shaping up to be pretty darn cool. The face is pretty much dead on.
The art is confident, and it’s clear just how much Howard has grown as a storyteller since the first DEAD book years ago. I must admit, I was suspect when I heard that the DEAD well was going to be tapped again, but if the level of entertainment we get here can be maintained, it’ll have proved to be a good idea.
