by Saladin Ahmed & Christian Ward
Saladin Ahmed and Christian Ward have created such an interesting comic book centred around a character who can’t really speak. I have been thoroughly enjoying this series since it’s first issue and this week’s issue #9 is definitely the best so far. Ahmed and Ward tell the story of a woman, recently receiving the news that her husband has died. The issue takes us through her reactions and the reaction of the community surrounding her. The catch is the deceased man is Crusher Creel, a known super villain who has surely killed many before, but in his last moments alive, saved many. It is a touching story about the value of a man’s life and what that means when he dies.
