Loose Ends TPB Review: Loose Ends, Tight Story

[rwp-review-recap id="0"] In the afterword of the Loose Ends, writer Jason Latour reflects on the 10 years it took to make this comic happen — and that decade of work shows on every page and in every panel. The four-issue Image crime series finds its way to shelves in trade paperback form this week.
