As much as I enjoy Incognito, it makes me miss Criminal more and more; it feels cruel to compare the two, but with the same creative team it’s hard not to. This second series of Incognito is a fun, violent ride mixing the noir style Ed Brubaker has developed over the years with an exceptionally well choreographed pace, courtesy of Sean Phillips. Every page is an art tour de force and keeps the reader engaged when the story falters; this arc sees Zack Overkill trying to locate an undercover agent whose gone rogue. It’s a great idea and Brubaker throws in a lot of great ideas within this world of super villains, but it never quite grabs as much as his other crime books. At times this feels wonderfully original, while at others feeling like a subpar Sleeper rehash; it’s wild in its conveyance of quality, but constant in its delivery of style. The star of the book is Sean Phillips, whose art never ceases to amaze, making the most ridiculous and confusing of situations into an incredible, intricate piece of superhero (or villain) violence and drama.

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 5 - Excellent
