Sometimes the black sheep of the family can become the white knight

In the second issue, Eliot Ness is trying to get John Reid to return as the Lone Ranger, without any luck. Meanwhile, John is trying to convince his nephew Britt to take up the mantle instead. But Britt has a different way of taking on the pro-Nazi threat. He will convince the criminals that he is one of them.

I’m truly loving this series so far. I love the sense of legacy that’s going on in this book. And elements like the older generation versus the newer one. The entire contrast of ideas works on so many levels.

Micheal Uslan just really did his research, not on just the main characters but historical elements that were going on at the time. Uslan incorporates the famous Cleveland Torso Murders into this story. And it works so well. This is seriously exceptional storytelling.

Gionvanni Timpano’s art was a little sloppier this issue than it was in the previous issue. I’m not sure what changed, but it looks different. But it doesn’t take away anything from the story telling.

All in all, another great issue that leaves me waiting for the next thrilling adventure.
