While most other Crow tales have simply been variations on a theme, this is a variation of the central myth. In this 5th telling of the Eric Draven legend (proceeded by the original comic, the film, the tv series, and John Shirley's Wings Burnt Black) Jon J. Muth coalesces what has come before and fearlessly resurrects a powerful new tale.

What if The Crow was wrong? Thought provoking, with excellent art throughout. See Book 2: Evil Beyond Reach for the rest of the story...
The art is great and gorgeous at times, but the story just sucks. The first three issues butcher O'Barr's brilliant original tale and the rest is just an attempt to cash in on the trademark.
A look at the concept that inspired the cinematic doomed love story, this volume shows how much better the film is than the actual collection - a rare feat indeed.
The art in this is phenomenal and the story line holds its own too.
