The Rundown: Leon is fading fast. Brae is getting in too deep and the Winters family are about to get a lesson in escalation.
Leon finds himself in a dangerous world beyond the living and the dead and he is going to find that not only does the spirit of his murdered brother Wade still resides there, but that there is another presence. One that will show Leon that the biggest danger to the family is one close to home.
Brae finds himself getting too close to Letitia and what he doesn’t know about her could get him killed. Detective Herron has increased her busts of ash dealers in hopes of getting information about the Winters operation as the mob sends a message to the family. As danger increases for the family and their business, Leon sends another message to those coming after his family.
The Story: As the danger escalates for the family, Cullen Bunn does a great job of ramping up the tension with both the characters and the story. The new threat hanging over the family is handled well and creates a new character that engages the reader. I really want to see where this story goes next. Every issue takes the reader deeper into the world Bunn is creating and everything involving the characters is intriguing and immersive.
The Art: Jonas Scharf’s art is beautiful. It perfectly matches the tone and style of this kind of noir type story. All of the characters look amazing and even the most brutal moments throughout the story have a sense of violent beauty about them.
