The morning after the night before! The top twenty assassins got whittled down pretty sharply and now sits at 8.

Bishop is still on the hunt for whoever killed his husband even though his target pool was almost entirely wiped out in one sweep. Rankin seems to be reveling in the whole escapade and thinks it’s brilliant I don’t really trust him at all, he’s a little too keen on the whole affair.

I love the artwork in this comic the deaths are incredible and the level of detail is superb, when someone dies you know EXACTLY how. I loved the flashbacks to each of their first kills and all the different routes everyone took in becoming a killer it was a nice little touch to get more involved with the characters.

My only real issue with this comic is the characters, each assassin is just far too interesting in genuinely gutted when they die is already invested I mean wistful stan is amazing how did he get so world-weary? I need to know more! Fernado looked like an amazing character and if David Bowie Knife doesn’t get his own spin-off comic then there is no justice! There are plenty of brilliant characters left to enjoy but its clear no one is safe. I love it!

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
