Straight Forward Reviews : Executive Assistant Assassins # 16
Writer - Vince Hernandez
Artist - Jordan Gunderson
Publisher - Aspen Comics
Review by Jeremias de Leon
This particular assassin's story starts off with intrigue and reluctance. Living a rough life she's grown up quite capable in the martial arts. The story moves on from there with criminal activities and a tragedy and desire for revenge.
The writing in this has me recall stories of corporate espionage and martial art revenge movies rolled into one. So far it's turned out quite intriguing.
With little in terms of action and since they caught my eye so much, I'd like to mention that the character designs in this issue are really well done. Something about them especially the way their hair is drawn that gives the issue some nice stylistic flair.
The writing in this issue is top notch and the character designs and dialog are very intriguing. Fans of the issue may or may not feel the comic is too slow with the lack of action. But it's understandable in this issue with needing to tell the backstory to this character. The issue could have used a little more backstory on the characters themselves though. Like how they got to be so good at martial arts or why the main character's sister is a criminal. EA : Assassins 16 gets an 8.5 out of 10.
