Cipher Reviewed on CBR

For those who visited Steve Bryant’s table at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, you may have noticed and picked up a Preview Edition of Cipher: The Sorcerer Pope. Come to find out that one of those that picked up a copy was Greg Burgas, the author of Comic Book Resources‘ (CBR) Comics Should Be Good column. In his July 26th edition of the column, he gave a brief recap of that event here, describing Cipher as:

Cipher: The Sorceror Pope Part One by Steve Bryant and JunBob Kim. Kim’s art is really keen, and only crazy people don’t like Bryant’s writing!

Following his brief recap, he kindly did a full review of the issue. It does include some spoilers so be sure to read at your own risk.
