IDW Comics releases a sinister crime/crime solving story in Lowlifes on its first issue.

So after I read some crime and detective stories, I figured that some comics would represent how justice would come to the part of the story. It’s like one comic that put everything from the beginning like Batman and Sherlock Holmes. However, I’d just stumbled on this comic, but not really related to some crime-solving comic that you guys read before. Lowlifes is based on a realistic crime story that you’ve ever known, but it can involve with killings and rape.

To start off, the story began of a cop who seeks revenge for someone who raped his wife, however, things got worse when someone with a van of flowers that is actually the rapist who came over to her house and raped her. The story is quite complicated than reading some other crime stories, but this one would take you to an unbelievable place than La La Land. But soon at night the cop just stumbled some bearded old man who is the same guy who was on the flower van truck, and then he assaulted him for raping his wife. Where did it get all of this from?

As a result, he was mad for attacking the rapist, but I had to agree to that, because when or where did that rapist get his delusions from? The main character is more of a gangster than a cop, but whenever he sees his wife, he’s shocked at what happened back then. I just wonder where does this story come next? The story is much more of a crime detective story, but a very complicated one, because with all that going on, I wonder if the main character is going over with that when this is all over with that rapist, and somehow it almost portrayed as real life, and so is the art as well. If you’re wondering about reading another crime story or something, then this is for you.
