Summary

I read the first issue of “One Last Job” about a year ago and thoroughly enjoyed it and was eager for more. I backed the Kickstarter campaign for the second issue as soon as it came out. It was worth the wait.

In this installment we get more action, more character development, and more intrigue. Who has it in for Thomas? Why is this individual willing to spend this much money and effort to kill Thomas? If they wanted to torment Thomas, why not kill his wife and make it be known that she is dead? These are questions I’m hoping to have answered in the third installment.

I liked the choice of artistic style for the cover. Making the focal point  be the reflection in one of Thomas’s wife’s earrings was very original. The blood on the earring adds to the intensity.

I liked how the interior artwork matched the tempo of the story. There are no wasted panels in this book. I particularly enjoyed seeing Thomas’s method of resolving the issue with the airplane.

Usually I don’t care for spy thrillers. The Jack Ryans and James Bonds of the world don’t really do it for me. “One Last Job” is the exception to the rule. As a geek on a budget I believe that “One Last Job” is well worth the price of admission. It is the rare spy thriller that I ago out of my way to keep up on!
