Anyone have any opinions on Carbon Grey? The artwork looks phenomenal.

I passed on it until it’s completed. But since you like the artist he did Daughters of the Dragon and Shanna minis. And the first arc of Harbinger. If you haven't already read them.

Yeah, I read the two Marvel minis he did. I liked his art back then, but this looks even better. Vol. 3 is on kickstarter right now, and I was thinking about backing it.

It's enjoyable, but a bit cliched. It gets a lot of comparisons to Out of Sight and Ocean's Eleven. Redmond is a retired master thief who get's pulled reluctantly back into that world. His wife has left him and he's trying to reconnect with her, his son is following in his footsteps but is nowhere as good, he's got a federal agent on his trail, and a young female protege that doesn't want him to leave the game. The art is very solid too.

I'm about 6-7 issues in and it's enjoyable. It's nothing great or ground breaking just an enjoyable romp.

In case anyone is curious, Astounding Wolf-Man=NO, just NO. I will not bother with Super Dinosaur.

By the time I hit issue 12 I said, I've only got so long to go might as well finish it. Did it get cancelled or did Kirkman completely lose interest?
