Hit List #3

The hit list
grows as more members of the Brown House Bishops fall to a mysterious crew of
assassins. But a monkey wrench is thrown into the mix as Rian continues to play
with fire. The acclaimed, heart-pounding, fast-paced action/thriller series
from Zenescope Entertainment continues!
So, despite jumping into the middle of the series, it’s a pretty
good read.  Billionaire Jordan Bale, has
taken a few hits to his secret operation, but that’s not about to put a stop to
his quest for vengeance against the Brown House Bishops.  Although, with Rian starting to slip-up,
Jordan isn’t entirely sure this operation can go off without a hitch, despite
Cody vouching for her.  Now the mercs are
brought together to form a single strike force, but will they be able to work
together?  Ralph Tedesco has really
outdone himself on this one.  It reads
like a TV action-drama and really sucks you into the story.  This is definitely one series I would pick
up.
The writing by Mr. Tedesco is what made this issue.  I love the grittiness that the characters
give off and how they each have their own sordid past, especially Rian
apparently.  This is one of, if not the
most realistic story that Zenescope has put out.  No powers or costumes, or supervillains, just
a group of hired guns out to stop a criminal organization.  The artwork by Sami Kivela is just superb.  I mean everything looks gorgeous and it
really brings the whole book together.  I’ve
enjoyed this issue so much, that I’m thinking of running out and grabbing the
previous two books, just so I get the whole story before the end of the
series.  So, if you haven’t already
picked up 1 and 2, go do that and definitely grab this one as well.
The only downside to this issue is that there’s only two
more installments in the whole series. 
Sure you don’t want the story to drag, but it sucks that it’s ending so
soon as well.  I guess once this story
comes to a close, we can all hope that Ralph is hard at work, bringing us a
sequel to such a fine piece literature.

And there you have it, a no-holds barred showdown between
Jordan Bale and Brown House is underway. 
If Cody can keep Rian in line then this should go down without a hitch,
but we all know that things never go that smoothly.  So, be sure to pick up a copy of Hit List
issue 3 because if you don’t, this is one list you definitely don’t want to be
on.  I’ve heard Will is a pretty good
shot, just saying.  For more info on
