The Rundown: Lee Harvey Oswald tells the story of his recruitment into the department of truth.

In a smoke-filled room, Lee Harvey Oswald finally decides to tell his story. A story that will continue to the moment his name becomes known to the world. Unfortunately, that story will begin back to his days in the military and an interesting meeting with a man who seems to know exactly how his story will play out and offers him a chance to write a new one.

After deciding, he is taken to a secure location and shown things no one else has ever seen. Things that will bring Oswald into a new and dangerous world. A world that will also bring him face to face with the woman with the crossed-out eyes in a storage room in Dallas.

The Story: James Tynion IV brings back this riveting series with a new arc that already has me excited. The story has great suspense throughout and is an intriguing drama that weaves a web of lies, half-truths and more into a complicated series of events that is compelling to the reader. A wonderful return to this strange and interesting world that has already hooked me back in.

The Art: Simmonds’ art is beautifully dynamic and visually unique. I love how the art creates an emotional response from the reader as events within the story unfold.
