4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up! 21 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback
This series keeps getting better and better. We have reached the halfway point and it is time for the origin story. What really happened on Operation Draw Venom? Well now you know and it proves to be just as complex as everything else in these muddy waters.

Some more artistic talent joins the team and art style gets a little less blocky with some finer lines and more detail being added. The origin story is told as a flashback which has a curious washed-out look and some unusual shading to it.

Another good volume that ensures you definitely want to stay to the end. Thumbs Up!

4.0 out of 5 stars What a tangled web we weave 10 Aug 2010
By bobbaer
Format:Paperback
This is continuing story of the losers trying to find the elusive max. Their search brings them to the exotic country of qatar where they must deal with Islamic Fundmentalists, CIA agents and the Qatar security service all to get just a glimpse of max. Theres also the explanation of how the losers were burned and it also shows little signs of Aisha's ulterior motives that may work against the team. It was a fantastic read filled with action, political intrigue and dark humor. It also increases the myth of Max no longer just potraying him as a mysterious figure but a force of nature who be immortal and satanic in nature. However despite how good this book is it is recommended that you read the previous ones as this is a continous story that only increases character development to those who are familiar to them rather than new readers. This is also true with Max's mission, which though isnt entirely clear in this issue will be even more complicated and confusing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Says you, hatstand. 28 May 2005
By mcpooyan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The first thing I should tell you about Trifecta is that if you haven't already read the comics individually, only the last four issues of this compilation were drawn by Jock (16-19). 13 and 14 were drawn by Nick Dragotta, and 15 by Ale Garza. Just a word of warning. It's not like these two guest artists don't have skills, its just that Jock's artwork is what first attracted me to the series, and its why I keep coming back. But the issues he does draw are fantastic, Jock really seems to be getting a hang of this, delivering artwork thats even more stylized and cool than previous issues, while avoiding problems like the repeating of facial expressions (can you say eye squint) that distracted a little in the first compliation. Diggle's story in 16-19 (which concerns the last disasterous mission of the losers) also delivers, dialogue and character development are excellent, I especially liked seeing pre-betrayal Roque. So to sum up, a little dissapointed by guest artist issues, but overall the quality of 16-19 make it a good compilation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind-blowing! 18 Sep 2010
By Jamie Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Don't hesitate to buy the second (and final) volume. The ending is absolutely fabulous!

I wasn't a fan of the few chapters where guest artists replaced Jock's artwork, but the story never wavered on its way to a high-octane finale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out on a high note 13 Dec 2010
By J. Shurin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
At only 32 issues, this is practically a mini-series compared to most of the work going on in comics today, but Diggle and Jock have done the right thing by wrapping up the storyline at at a high note.

The lopsided battle between Clay and Max comes to a conclusion in this mammoth second volume. The good guys fight the bad guys all over the globe, culminating in a wacky, full-sized act of Bond-villainy in the Middle East. Skirting the edge between over-the-top and oh-so-serious, this is a well-written espionage action adventure that keeps everything bouncing along at a wild pace.
5.0 out of 5 stars Actually 4.5 Stars But 5 is Still Accurate 26 Jan 2014
By Eric K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As I stated in my review of the first book, the book is better than the movie.

The high level of action, well written characters, dialogue, and sheer shock value of the first book carries over to the second and final volume. Between the two books there are several characters and subplots that never appeared in the movie. When you see how they fit together with the main endgame of the series you realize just how good the movie could have been and how wonderful the books are in comparison.

Now, the ending is fantastic (NO SPOILERS), if just a tad cliched with a deus ex machina bit of exposition to explain it (hence the half star deduction). But not to the point where you feel cheated. Any fan of action and espionage films and stories will probably be able to guess the ending well in advance, but the execution of the events is still fulfilling and consistent with the characters.

If you bought Book One and liked it, get Book Two. The series ends with this volume and there are no loose ends, no little winks that they might go on. Everything is tied off and ends spectacularly.

Better than the original story and tied it up nicely. A solid read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the movie or first book.
