    "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."

    Reviewer Comments:
    What happens when a man who is tasked with protecting society from monsters (both figuratively and literally in this case) is becoming one himself? That's the question Jonathan Lincoln seeks to ask and answer in the new miniseries, Tracker, from Top Cow. It's sort of a werewolf twist on a hard boiled tale of an FBI agent tracking the man responsible for grizzly acts of public mass murder...or something like that...but you know what? I think its good, pretty darn good.

    The script, by Lincoln, moves quickly (in a good way) introducing the reader (in quite a grizzly and gory and also good way) to the life of FBI agent Alex O'Roark. A man on a mission if there ever was one, O'Roark, is likeable and rough around the edges, the way any good public defender is, and I think that's much of why this comic works, you feel for O'Roark and what's happening to him. Lincoln's script successfully draws you into his life, predicament, and the cast of characters that surround him, that includes his rightfully concerned girlfriend, and tough talking partner Jezebel.

    The art by Francis Tai is a good match for the story. His characters are well defined and he draws them each with their own definitive personality's. He does a great job of storytelling, but the art falls a little flat in the color department. He does, however, create some masterfully horrifying scenes, much like the bloody opening bus crime scene, and does a great job of keeping our villain both visualized just enough so that we know who we are looking for, but hidden enough that we are left something to our imaginations.

    The comics greatest success is that it shows enough of its cards for the reader to get the DNA of the series, while leaving enough of them unknown to keep the reader interested in what happens next, which is exactly what a first issue should accomplish. I for one am on board to see what happens next.
