Dr. Benjamin Dane was a brilliant surgeon at the top of his game, until drugs & alcohol took a toll on his body & mind. While performing emergency surgery on a car accident victim, his body shuts down and he collapses in a drug & booze induced coma. After a gruelling review by the medical board, his license is stripped away and the victim’s family is suing for malpractice & negligence, he hits rock bottom. A shady individual named Craven comes knocking on his door with a unique opportunity for the good doctor, given his current situation it’s the only opportunity he has left.


The Pros

A gripping first issue for a potentially excellent series. A grimy and brutal look into the illegal world of black market organ transplants. ER meets Dirt Pretty Things in this captivating story written by A.J. Lieberman (Term Life GN) & illustrated by co-creator Colin Lorimer. Lieberman & Lorimer have crafted a blunt story about a criminal organization committing despicable crimes and ego tripping surgeons with god complexes. The protagonist of the story is a genius young surgeon who has bitten off more than he can chew and the dark path he must now take.


Lorimer’s illustrations are horribly beautiful and really set the mood for this grimy and dirty business. The colors are mostly dark with lots of green for the O.R. stuff and dark red for the blood & guts, which is not for the faint of heart (there’s a few of those in there too). The cover is pretty affective, with a title that tells you right away the concept of this series. Having seen the covers of all the titles, when put side by side, displays a wide wraparound cover that looks spectacular (click here to view it).


The Cons



The Outcome

I was anticipating this mini series ever since a saw a preview a few months ago and it didn’t disappoint. I look forward to the next issue. Make sure you pick this one up. From Image Comics.
