Synopsis: The hyper-powered world of Crackdown (Xbox) has made its way to the comic page! In the not-so-distant future, civilized society is more plugged-in and interconnected than ever – but criminal organizations are growing more connected as well, forming unholy alliances, and plotting for an unprecedented campaign against the world. When a series of devastating blackout attacks plunge major metropolitan areas into darkness and chaos, the global population is terrified, traditional law enforcement is overwhelmed – and it’s up to The Agency, an elite international crime-fighting task force, to restore peace and deliver justice, by any means necessary. – Comixology

Story: The story in this book is not very clear they make mention of fighting gangs and criminal organizations that are rampantly growing in the city, but we do not actually see this to me it seemed like there was a lot of running around and yelling at each other and not much of a plot to speak of. Maybe its because I’m not much of a gamer and don’t know the story behind Crackdown, but other than a moment where there is a blackout I wasn’t sure what exactly was happening in the story it may be cleared up in the next issue but it doesn’t leave me wanting to find out.

Art: The art in this book however is quite good. Character designs or dynamic and unique. The colors pop and really convey the technologically advanced wold they were trying to depict, I just wish the story was better to match the art.
