The White Suits #1 of 4
Dark Horse Comics
Written by Frank Barbiere
Art by Toby Cypress
When you’re a retired spy who’s killed more men than most people in prison, you’re going to be haunted by what you have done. You can’t escape it, but you can forget about it, either by substance or retrograde amnesia. Suddenly, you realize you’re being followed by a woman who knows how to blend in and disappear. Then when you decide you’re going to get answers, she shows you home much she’s been trained in the same arts you have and knocks you out. When you come to, Sarah Anderson introduces herself and tells you a force from your old days are back, The White Suits.
Here is another book that focused on more art than words. There is not that much in the speaking parts but it wasn’t needed. The writer allowed the story to unfold without talking all the time and you were given a heads up to what was happening in this world before you started reading, a plus for me. But there were points where it was hard to see who was talking and the talk bubble blended in too much to the background. The art was over-exaggerated but it fit with this story and flowed well. Although the paneling was a little over-the-top, it worked most of the time.
This is going to be an interesting story to follow. The two main characters listed in this book don’t meet up with the antagonists yet, but the second story of the White Suits is allowed to go on so both can mature as characters. Not to mention, you get that gritty feel from the art and paneling. I really can’t wait to see where this story goes and what is going on with the characters. In my humble opinion, get this book and if everything stays true, get the next three that follow. I give this 4 caps out of 5.
