Review: ★★★★☆

“I hate St. Louis.” “Every time I come here somebody tries to kill me.” This is our first introduction to Jack McGinnis. He is the questionable hero of this tale. The beginning events have Jack transporting a shiny metal brief case to some questionable people in St. Louis. Apparently this is Jack’s MO. It’s his life choice or he is a Ledger Man. The opening is clever and well thought out way to protect Jack from being killed right off. Jack is chiseled rough-looking guy that simply trying to make a living after the Doxxing of 2020. What is the doxxing? It’s catch in story where everyone’s digital secrets have been made to light. If you’ve been bad, then your paying for it. The comic goes back to 2018 to explain Jack’s possible involvement in the Doxxing. Jack was a CIA agent and needed work. The storytellers want us to buy into the fact that Jack is the hero, but we will see. The book justifies it’s title by showing us the other side of people who never really went digital or were connected though everything they did. This hits home with Jack, as his story becomes personal. I like the concept that could release everything about yourself.  I enjoyed the artwork. It’s color design and style match this type of book. It should continue to be a solid read from here.
