    One thought on “Term Life”

    1. I'd never heard of this story before but I'm glad I found out. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this is the same writer who did Cowboy Ninja Viking and I loved that's series. I would compare this story to the Brubaker series criminal. It's about a guy who sells robbery plans to thieves and then walks, but he gets set up. He has to then protect his daughter and give her something as a father if everything goes wrong. On the edge of your seat thrills.

    2. 3.5? Real solid crime-y action/noir-y stuff. I'm surprised I haven't heard people make a bigger deal about this given how much everyone seems to love Criminal Editions. It's got a similar television crime story feel to Brubaker, too, but way less broody, which was a plus for me. It's not a plot that is going to wow you with twists and turns, and at times it feels a little gratuitous, but it does the job the genre demands admirably.

    3. Started off not the gretest but got better as story went along.ProsGood violenceReferencesto punk bandsIntreging storyConsAt the beggining it was slow.ConclusionGood read loved it great ending as well

    4. I love this comic. There are some copy editing errors (for some reason that's not uncommon with comics) but otherwise it's gorgeous. The disjointed storytelling takes a bit to get used to but the way all the threads come together by the end is beautiful. Lieberman writes a compelling take and Nick's art suits the atmosphere so damn well. I love all of Nick's comic work (a lot!) but the way his art cooperates with AJ Lieberman's story is absolutely perfect here.

    5. This comic is so good. It is full of education value and an emotional plot. It shows a father reconnecting to his daughter and protecting her and them adjusting to each other. On their journey hiding from bad people, they learnt a lot from and about each other and realised that all they needed was each other.

    6. Tem um estilo narrativo interessante mas repete sem inovar o velho tema do criminoso simpático que se envolve em situações perigosas com final infeliz. O estilo gráfico é interessante, perto do gritty mas puxando pelas cores quentes.
