I liked the Court of Owls crossover, so this was a natural for me to buy.

Nothing super-original here, just well written origin story to create some reader empathy and establish that there’s no freaking way Calvin Rose is getting out of this…no way.

The premise is ripe with a ton of possible adventures for Calvin (the Fugitive, anyone?). I think Tynion and Snyder will deliver.

As for art, my gripe with Guillem is he attempts some non-traditional perspective shots–points for that–but a few them just don’t work.

Just look at the cover: Why are Calvin’s fingers bending like that?

The art is certainly dynamic and keeps you flowing nicely (like you are on the run), just has a few hiccups in my opinion.

Added to Pull List.
