Foley, along with writer Shane Riches and artist Josh Holder, takes you into the life of Revere Windsor, a direct descendant of Paul Revere. Revere is a hired courier that goes wherever the deal takes him. Working with the government or gangsters is not an issue for Revere, as the payoff is his most important priority.
The first of four issues focuses on giving readers an idea on what put Revere in his current career and how he uses his special skill to outwit his foes. Quite a bit of action, character background, a bit of lust thrown in to keep the pace interesting. Revere is hired for a job that he believes is more than just a simple pick-up.
The moment you start the comic you are enticed with fast action and fast monologues. Foley and Riches did a great job of using the memory of Paul Revere to help illustrate how similar the two are and how Windsor is a bit different.
Holder’s art varies throughout the comic as features to characters come and go quite often. The main character can look like young Rocky Balboa and then old Rocky suddenly. The art of the backgrounds looks simple at times, while key objects and characters are given a greater focus. Explosions and bloody battles are common, but far from gory content or expletive language. “Sayonara suckers,” is the crudest language so far.
With the creativity presented by Foley and Riches this tale can easily get you hooked into wanting to read more. The comic starts and ends with action and gives you the feeling that the next one will start out with more action. Do not expect professional wrestling references or traditional Foley humour, this one is a unique adventure that does not need to step into the squared circle.
