Straight Forward Reviews: Executive Assistant Assassins 14

Daisy is back again this month. Where does her story take her next? Or more importantly should you even be picking this story up again?

Review by Jeremias de Leon


Things are finally kicking into gear as Daisy starts her executive assistant training. All the while this is happening forces are moving in to try and bring her back to her father.

This issue starts putting puzzle pieces together that explain why Daisy is the way she is from what you saw in the first issue of her story arc. Her internal struggle and acceptance of who she is done well.

The dialog highlights that struggle with Daisy. The antagonist of the issue and the headmaster's views on life and honor drive home Daisy's internal struggle. Which I have to bring up, did resolve itself a bit quickly. But it was still effective enough that it isn't jarring.


The art is great in this issue. It's more gritty than previous issues and the action looks fantastic. When things hit or stab it looks like there was an impact or there was some shredding of flesh and it's perfect. The dark color schemes of most pages also add to the tone of the comic and it's fantastically done as well. No complaints here, matter of fact it's nothing but praise for the art.


Daisy's transformation into an executive assistant and the gritty action packed art combine into a fantastic issue of EA: Assassins. I give this issue a solid 9 out of 10.
