Noble Causes #23
Image Comics
$4/$3.50 US
*** 1/2 (out of five)

I’ve referred to Noble Causes before as one of my ‘guilty pleasures’.
It is just about the closest thing to a soap opera as you’ll find in capes-and-tights comics and its blend of ‘sex, secrets and super-powers’ is hard to match.
That being said, the first page of issue #23 caught me completely off guard and blew the socks right off my feet. Let’s just say the ‘sex’ part of the equation just got kicked up a notch and you’ll have to buy the book for a more graphic explanation.
It’s awfully difficult to surprise me after the tens of thousands of comics I’ve read over the years, but kudos to writer Jay Faerber and new artist Jon Bosco for doing that — and for continuing to put out one of the most underrated and absorbing comics around.
