For those answers, you’ll need to keep on reading, Bold Reader! This page concludes the second pulse-pounding chapter of THE STANDARD. But get ready… because issue #3 is where this series makes the monumental jump from a solid superhero story to one of the best superhero tales I’ve ever read.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I’ll put THE STANDARD #3 up there with any single issue of a superhero book published by any publisher in the last decade. It’s that good.

But, hey, by now I’m preaching to the converted. I had a blast filling in for John Lees this week in THE STANDARD commentary. If you want to connect with me on Twitter, my handled is @tylerjamescomic. (I’m always up for a good chat about THE STANDARD, comics, smallpress publishing… you name it.)
