Review – Tracker Volume 1 Trade Paperback
A serial killer story with a twist, Tracker is a fairly entertaining series that has it’s issues here and there, but still worth the read. Written by Jonathan Lincoln with art by Francis Tsai, Derec Donavan and Abhishek Malsuni the series follows an FBI agent tracking down a mysterious serial killer.
Alex O’Roark, the FBI’s top tracker, has his perfect life ripped to shreds when a case to capture the world’s most dangerous serial killer leads him straight into the maw of a werewolf. Now, keeping his secret from his gorgeous fiancé and the FBI, he must hunt down the wolf that infected him before the disease turns him into a monster.
The beginning of the story starts off fantastic. It’s beyond entertaining and very original. The pacing is good and interaction with the characters is great. My only issue is the finale of the series and a break-in/break-out that’s a bit over the top for a series that’s pretty grounded.
It’s entertaining enough though, and a nice first outing for those involved.
Plot: Lincoln’s strengths are in the interaction of the characters. It’s believable, the banter and feelings between FBI agents, and a spouse. The action is where the series falls apart, but more specifically the end chapter, which involves an over the top break-in/break-out. It’s a solid outing, though doesn’t quite blow me away. Rating: 7.75
Art: The art is split up between three folks, and it’s still pretty consistent. It’s great to look at, but much like the story, it doesn’t quite blow me away. Very solid though. Rating: 7.75
Overall: I enjoyed this first volume and look forward to the second. It’s solid, but doesn’t blow me away. It might be right for you, but didn’t quite blow me away. The word I’d use is solid. Overall rating: 7.75
