Every Day Is Like Wednesday Talks Hotwire: Requiem for the Dead #2

Writer J. Caleb Mozzocco, who writes for the Newsarama blog, reviews the 2nd issue of Hotwire: Requiem for the Dead for his own blog. Caleb is one of the tougher reviewers so seeing praise from him is really a complement to the series.

“So Steve Pugh’s doing a pretty good job of ratcheting up the suspense and stakes in this story. The art remains remarkably strong, and I generally hate this sort of over-rendered, computer-y, characters-built-around-models sort of stuff. Pugh’s apparently found a way to make it work without making me sad.

And since I’ve been harping on price points and variants so much lately, I suppose I should point out that this costs only $2.99 for 22 glossy pages, and the only ads are a half-dozen house ads all put in the back of the book, where they don’t interfere with the story. How come Radical can do this and DC and Marvel can’t?”
