Impulse Creation Reviews Pilot Season: Murderer
Welcome to another installment of—wait, Pilot Season? Hold the presses! Okay, you probably noticed the change in title, and that's because Top Cow is kicking off another annual Pilot Season, a neck-to-neck challenge that pits one pilot comic against another for a spot at a regular comic series. To honor the event and keep you up to speed, we'll be following the releases and reporting back to you each month. Now back to our regularly scheduled feature:
As comic book readers ourselves, we at Impulse know how important it is to get a quality bang for money spent on a single issue. Comic prices add up, after all! So every so often we’ll take an in-depth look at a new title or mini-series. We’ll give you the heads up on whether it's is worth getting into or passing up. If it's good, then you'll know. If it's not so good ... well, we read it so you don't have to.
Top Cow's Pilot Season begins with Murderer #1, written by Robert Kirkman with pencils by Nelson Blake II.
The comic's ending makes the story worthwhile. One thing's for sure: By the last page, Murderer promises volumes more than it let on.
