An excellent spy/adventure/action story,
This review is from: XIII (english version) - 1 - The Day of the Black Sun (Kindle Edition)
This is an excellent action/adventure story, with very good artwork, which, while being ’European’, is also very reminiscent of old-fashioned American and British newspaper strip artwork, the sort of thing we used to occasionally see in American non-superhero comics many years ago.
This first 46-page instalment sees the, possibly clichéd nowadays, opening chapter, as a mysterious figure is washed up on the almost deserted American shore. The man has been shot in the head and cannot remember anything about his past. A couple of killers turn up looking for him, and he gets a clue which leads him further on into the plot, until he finds out just why people are after him – he was apparently involved in an assassination…
It may sound old fashioned, and it reminded me visually of the old James Bond newspaper strip – though this is in colour – but it was interesting enough to make me want to read more; so I shall be off to the library in the morning to look for further episodes.
