The first arc of Jack Foster’s Gun managed that rare thing in indie superheroes of being a book that doesn’t feel like a simple copy of a big two title,and instead felt like it actually had something fresh to say with the genre. A mix of crime noir and a heist thriller, but with capes, it was a firm fixture on our last two best of countdowns, so how will this new story arc live up to that first caper?
