Review: ★★★☆☆



Brian Michael Bendis is currently writing 6 different comics for DC Comics. I haven’t quite figured out why I have chosen to review this particular series. It could be that it’s not such a huge stretch that a famous comic book writer/artist could be a spy. It’s pointed out that comic creators are famous in a particular way that makes so much sense. Max isn’t exactly the best spy though. Issue 2 opens with Max being interrogated by another guy in his line of work. We don’t know how he got there. It creates a much bigger world then what we seen so far. We get to see a much deeper role for Julia who just simply seems like she is just doing her job. As the story unfolds Bendis tells another tale that is an older story. A young lady tells the story of her father and a samurai sword. The sword has a history that remains to be seen. It’s just the change in the tone of story that makes it interesting and draw us more into this bigger world. It’s almost a beg tease for  a bigger payoff. Issue 2 is just a side trip to what’s next. There is more story to Max’s trip to Istanbul. The interrogator knows more then he’s letting on and let’s hope Max survives from here on out.
