Library Journal Review

This first volume in a new series by the acclaimed team of Brubaker and Phillips (The Fade Out), with colorist Breitweiser (Velvet), combines elements of crime fiction and horror both psychological and supernatural to present a look at vigilantism unlike anything else. Depressed college student Dylan attempts suicide only to be spared by a demon with the offer of a bargain-kill someone once a month or face death yourself. Dylan soon decides to start targeting criminals overlooked by the system and becomes strangely successful in his violent endeavors. His personal affairs improve, and it seems for the first time he's living the life he's always wanted-which is exactly when the repercussions of his actions start catching up to him. Brubaker's talent for plotting, dialog, and exploring the darkest corners of the human heart is wonderfully complemented by Phillips's skill at depicting both drama and larger-than-life violence. -VERDICT Brubaker and Phillips are among the most dependable names in comics, and this new title will only further their reputation. Decidedly not for kids, but for everyone else, it's not to be missed.-TB © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
