All I can say is that Chuck Miller knows how to write pulp. He has created, perhaps, one of the best pulpverses in literature. It is populated with tons of real and fictional people that interact with the Centipede. So, don't be surprised to see Capone and Dillinger, as well as Proff. Moriarity, Bela Lugosi, and Amelia Earhart to name but a handful.
The action is fast, frantic, and cranked up at a breakneck speed. Can the Centipede handle all the danger that seems to be growing in his town like a festering boil? Do the dead walk? Zenith City proves to be the place that the search for the analytical engine begins. Can the Black Centipede stop Moriarity before he finds it, or will the Centipede finally fail? This is an amazingly written novel with characters that literally fly off the pages because they are so vibrant.
Grall nails the narration. I love listening to him do the Centipede, and I always think I wish he had taught Christian Bale how to say, "I'm Batman." He completely knocks this out of the park. He really has a sense for how to pace the story and add emotion as needed. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
