Razor's Origin Story - Areala
Everette Hartsoe had given his readers brief glimpses at the circumstances related to Razor's rise to a mentally-shattered vigilante cleaning up the streets of Queen City one scumbag at a time, but in Cry No More we finally get the definitive origin story.

For people unfamiliar with the character or the storyline, Cry No More is an ideal starting point. 48 pages of blood-soaked inks and colours bring the stark horrors of Queen City's Broughton Hospital for the Mentally Ill to life in squeamish detail. The story's told mostly through flashbacks, as Razor makes a pilgrimage to the now-defunct asylum, falling apart now thanks to years of neglect with rats and spiders the only caretakers.

But every hallway, every room, holds a memory. Razor confronts them, one by one, the good and the bad, the people who tried to help, the ones who gave up on her, and the one who took advantage of her. Especially the one who took advantage of her. His name is Jack Slattery. And after her field trip to Broughton, she's got one more pilgrimage to make, one more evil to repay with evil. And normally, Razor's fine with killing those who wrong her. But death's too good for Jack Slattery.

Hartsoe's story, Pollard's pencils, and Slick's inks tell a morbid tale where things get progressively worse and never get better. It's a frightful look at what revenge does to us as individuals, and a reminder that the consequences of our actions always catch up to us in the end. It's one of the best Razor stories ever told, and the perfect introduction to the character for new fans.
