I loved every part of this issue from the assassin rankings to the one man Q and A letters page, really nice touches.

If someone was trying to kill you, one way to protect yourself would be to invite all the best assassins in the world to keep you alive, going by this comic it may not be the best way but it does make a brilliant comic. A room full of assassins is never going to end without bloodshed but this takes it to a whole other level of gory with Maxwell taking one shot in particular that was awesomely gruesome.

There is so much to love in this issue the humour, the characters and the fact that it isn’t afraid to kill off what you would think would be a major character meaning no one is safe. The characters are brilliant all of them are unique and have their own charms and talent and I can’t wait to check out the rankings each issue. I can imagine that the action is only going to get bigger and more crazy as the issues go on and I can not wait to see how everything kicks off and if the assassins are going to be able to work together or not!

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
