I have a secret.

I didn’t know what to expect with this comic, I knew with Tom Taylor writing it it was going to be good but that was it. I didn’t know I was going to LOVE it. It is a rollercoaster of emotions I was saddened by the choices that had to be made, I laughed at the dry humour and pregnancy reactions and in between times I was engrossed in the action sequences and the story unfolding.

The artwork is amazing, the action panels look incredible and the characters come alive with emotion and convey everything without words I am already itching for the next installment and am fully invested in the seven secrets and keeping them safe. I cant wait to see Caspar’s role in the story and how the family secret will influence the relationship between the characters. My favourite scene was Tajana being a complete badass and interrupting Gareth and his Big stick, I can see her being one of my favourite characters as her attitude seems to cool and if she has been involved in raising Caspar then it could get interesting.

The story was laid out perfectly in this issue and you can tell it is just screaming to be fleshed out over the next (hopefully many) issues and I cannot wait

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
