Flashback Friday--The Winter Men
A mini-series about Russian super-humans that actually doesn't really involve that much with super-folk, but has a lot of cool crime-stuff and interesting political intrigue.
Brett Lewis is a good writer, but John Paul Leon is an amazing artist, with a style that is both nice-looking but subdued, and which lends itself great to action with its slight abstract-look but still being clear enough for the reader to tell what's going on--and there is a lot going on in this story. There are mobsters, a missing girl with a super-power, gun-fights, politics, and a bit of romance. It's very fun and exciting and has some humorous moments that help with dark tone of the comic--things can be depressing.
4 out of 5 stars.
