Young Liars #10

David Lapham possibly lies to his readers again, but who cares when the comic is this good? Besides, I like being lied to by Lapham. Who doesn’t?

A solid comic when the action starts, but it lacks an emotional core with an enigmatic hero who may not be what he appears. Not that we care.
