Things have definitely improved since the last volume. The action is faster, the storyline tighter and the stakes are getting higher. The 68 is an intriguing premise and we get to see their latest incarnations, from serial killers to simple-minded janitors. The injection of character-driven plot is most welcome.
The art has had a bit of a shakeup too with a crisper, more digital feel to it. There are some nice scenes but gone are the beautifully coloured flashbacks from volume one.
There is also the origin tale tucked in at the back that doesn’t add anything to the story.
This earns its Thumbs Up and makes you want to continue with the tale.
