    I d say Smoke is 4 stars and Ashes is 3, just because I wasn t a fan of the character evolution through the different artists The characters are so themselves in Smoke, people with their own bodies and facial structures and styles that are part of the world that is built and drawn in that story, and they devolve into generic humans with distinctive hair by the end of Ashes So that was a big disappointment But it speaks to how strongly I reacted to the the characters in the relatively short Sm I d say Smoke is 4 stars and Ashes is 3, just because I wasn t a fan of the character evolution through the different artists The characters are so themselves in Smoke, people with their own bodies and facial structures and styles that are part of the world that is built and drawn in that story, and they devolve into generic humans with distinctive hair by the end of Ashes So that was a big disappointment But it speaks to how strongly I r...

    Alex de Campi provides an adventure story that features all the trappings of an 80 s movie an all powerful evil empire existing in the shadows, a reformed assassin looking for answers, and a hot chick ready to tag along for the adventure so she can get a great scoop for her newspaper And as a bonus a robot assassin and an internet apocalypse Somehow, the book fails to becomethan a sum of its individual parts and the workmanlike prose and art provide a com...

    The good things in this book the ideas that are never followed through, Nathaniel s inventive digital space are so dragged down by the muck, the distractingly different changes in the art, the incessant picking at the dignity of anyone who is not a loner black ops assassin You could call that tragic, I guess, but it s hard not to feel like all the things I really enjoyed in this book are essentially accidents, which makes Kieron Gillen s fawning preface evendistasteful My assumption The good things in thi...

    I really liked Smoke It was an engaging mystery and I tore through it Ashes was a lot harder to like The art took away from the story Each chapter I found myself puzzling over the characters Were these new people or just complete reimaginings of the current ...

    Not great Read because Bill Sienkiewicz was involved and it wasn t enough Smoke is much better than Ashes but it still isn t worth your time.

    This was a difficult book to rate because there s a lot of brilliant stuff here The book itself is fucking stunning, a beautiful layout and design for the two pieces Smoke as a story and art are excellent homages to the thriller genre although some of the action was a little overblown and American for a comic all about London and Britain, in narrative, metaphors and themes But None of these things particularly grab my interest and the characters don t grab me either Ashes isn t as strong S This was a difficult book to rate because there s a lot of brilliant stuff here The book itself is fucking stunning, a beautiful layout and design for the two pieces Smoke as a story and art are excellent homages to the thriller genre although...

    I had heard a lot of great things about de Campi s writing in this book, so perhaps all the praise was overinflated, because it didn t meet my expectationsat least not all of it The first part, Smoke, was very good, an engaging thriller with several moving plot parts The ending quickly fishtailed, but overall ...

    I am sorry but I must agree with the majority of other reviews Smoke solid and Ashes inconsistent and all over the place Sometimes the different artists helped and other times it felt forced as if they couldn t afford or schedule to have a consistent artist Ending of both series were disappointing On a p...

    After a Kickstarter odyssey which at times seemed to straddle the line between Herculean and Sisyphean, we finally get the end of the story which began almost a decade back with Smoke, whose vision of 2012 does, from the other side, look very early noughties Prince William ha...
