And then there are fantastic action scenes – the secret agent stuff plays well enough on its own that it makes me think this team could handle a straight James Bond-style story, but thrown in all manner of robots, and it goes to a whole other level. It’s so much fun.
The art, by Andy MacDonald, is excellent. I’ve seen his art before, including on one of my favorite Punisher issues, and it’s always been quite good – I think this is the best work I’ve seen from him. There are ridiculous action scenes, but also people sitting in an office and talking. And several of the main characters have multiple versions, and he keeps them all distinct. This is one of my favorite Kickstart books so far.
