Goofs

Cassidy has tattoos. However, he heals, and since a tattoo starts out by being skin "damage", it is unlikely any tattoos applied would survive any healing session he undergoes. See more »

A Very Solid Start
28 May 2016 | by mad_man_moonSee all my reviews

... and based on episode one I'm intrigued to see more.

Not having read the source material past issue one I've no attachments to anything that already existed, and I like what the players are doing on screen. So with that in mind I don't have any hangups about it and I'm not sure that I really do that anyway. But this is engaging and the performances all have depth and colour.

It might sound like an odd thing to bring up, but the sound design is very polished, and helps with the spare visual look which is very pretty in itself.

I say that you should check this out, I think based on the first showing you'll probably want to watch another, and as long as it doesn't become too much like a monster of the week, I think it could have legs. As always we'll know more after four, five, or six, episodes.
