It's that time again and a new Kill or Be Killed is in our hands. After last month's cliffhanger, you couldn't wait to see the outcome. Let's waste no time.

The decision we see Dylan make is told from his perspective and understands he has the upper hand in this situation with the cops. Which leads him able to get out of this standoff. Dylan is on cloud nine after pulling off the restaurant incident. Since his first victim, Dylan’s confidence level continues to rise with each kill and become’s more comfortable. When you see Dylan make a dumb decision you find yourself yelling at him. Ed Brubaker has done a good job of providing character development to have you attached to the main character.

While Dylan is living up life and catching up with an old friend. That sorta carelessness has to lead to some unwanted eyes onto his vigilante spree.


We’re introduced to a new character through Dylan’s narration. The amount of info he has on the person makes you wonder how he knows this much in the future. This one relationship will have a big impact down the road.

While there is a lot of narration to take in. It all serves a purpose to the overall set up in this issue.

It’s hard not spoiling anything coming off last month’s cliffhanger. Every detail in the book is worth going in blind. If you’ve been following this series, I’m betting this is the first book you read this week. While the cliffhanger may not have seemed grand this time around. It still leaves you knowing Dylan has gotten himself into some shit. It was only a matter of time, right?

The art continues to shine and plays like watching a gritty crime show on HBO. This trio is an unstoppable team when working together.

Bits and Pieces:

Another great installment to this series. The story continues to move along showing Dylan’s situation can just get worse from here. You can only hope the best outcome for him in the end. Although it’s getting tougher to root for our main character at times.
