The action scenes are suitably over-the-top, yet grounded in the real world.  The fight scenes are executed so well – there’s a momentum to the fight scenes where every action is clear and choreographed.  Scenes of regular people fighting often fail in comics, because it’s a visual language that lends itself more to guys getting punched through buildings or blasted to atoms.  Juan Santacruz does a fantastic job with the storytelling and just drawing regular people.  His previous Kickstart book, Endangered, was an insane sci-fi epic with crazy aliens and technology and it looked gorgeous.  And somehow his style translates to normal human people with normal clothing.  It’s great work, and if you look at both of Santacruz’ Kickstart books, you’ll be amazed at his versatility.
