The artwork fits SOA perfectly, and the characters look and act like they do in the show, which is really important for me with these kind of spinoffs.

This features a whole new story that runs alongside Season 5 somewhere, but with connections and back-stories to key characters. Can't say much else without spoiling SOA, but fans of the show should love reading this extra 'episode'. I need more SAMCRO.

This was awesome, just like watching an apoisode of the show. I love Tiggs so much, his story just breaks my heart.

Pretty awesome. The art style fits SOA perfectly. Golden wrote a good story, though mostly based on happenings in the fifth season. This provides a little back story with Tig, his daughter, and the favor he owed another Son. Considering Tig is my favorite character, I really enjoyed this book that focuses on his character.

OK, so I have mixed feelings about this trade paperback. On the one hand, it's a professionally told action drama, which was hard to put down once I had started to read. And it's well drawn in the contemporary, rather realistic, mainstream American style, with gorgeous colouring.

On the other hand, I have little or no interest in stories featuring very, very macho men trying to kill each other. Yes, there's a tough older female thrown in to contrast with all the men, and another woman who actuall

The writing in this is solid. The plot takes place concurrently with season 5 of the tv show, and manages to tell a complete story without moving the main plot of the show. It gives some good background to the characters and gives a glimpse into what things were like before the show.

Not crazy about the art. The characters are all recognizable, which is good, but never does it really hit the emotional stakes in their facial expressions. Once or twice it has some good cinematic moments, but to ca

It would be a 3.5 if only I didn't love Sons of anarchy so much!!
As already mentioned.. I love the TV show. It's my favorite of all times and I wish one day to meet Sutter just to tell him "thank you". Him and all the actors have done a wonderful job in making us viewers love them and cry with them and suffer with them. The show has made me laugh, scream in anger and cry a lot and when I heard about the graphic novel I had to get it. I was missing all the guys sooo much and Charming town that I

This comic covers the timeline of Season 5 from Sons of Anarchy and shows Tig dealing with the emotional pain over the death of his daughter. Okay, maybe 5% emotional pain and 95% thuggery involving a lot of fighting, shooting, and killing of people who had it coming. So like the essence of the SOA show. In graphic novel format.

If you are going through Sons of Anarchy withdrawal, this will help. The plot was a typical SOA episode, with Tig being the main character in this volume. The graphics were good. There was plenty of violence, just like the television show. Looking forward to volume 2.

You can currently check this out at the Colona Public Library, along with other Graphic Novels.

Amazing graphic novel for any fan of the series. Sadly very short, but the dynamic story made up for it. I do deffinitely recommend this to any Sons of Anarchy fan, or people who want to catch a glimpse of what the show has to offer.

Exselllent exactly like the show and love how Tig centered it is and the flashes to Kozik so good. Really recommmend for anny fan of the show, but you have to have watched up to and through season 5 to get what going on in the story.

It was just like a 6 episode arc from the show & I loved it! Great artwork & quality thick cut paper used to make the book. I'm looking forward to the second one if they make it.

I didn't like the art at first but it grew on me. Good coloring, and it read like an SOA episode.

Le récit est bien rythmé et les scènes d’action s’enchaînent à merveille. Bien qu’on se disperse un peu au début avec cette abondance de noms, on plonge très rapidement dans l’histoire digne d’un scénario de film.

Oh, come on... you know I'm gonna be over the moon about this, however it plays out. Season 5 Sons - angsty Tig, and the invocation of his friendship with Kozik... hell yes. More, more, more please! Can't wait to see where this is going.

Interesante. Me gusta dónde se ubica el tema, quizás puedan ampliar la oscuridad de ese personaje, para igualarlo a esta temporada. Es imposible leer a Jax o a cualquiera de los personajes y escuchar sus voces.

As a huge fan of the Shakespeare inspired show I was excited to read the comics. I was not disappointed. I highly recommend this first volume to anyone who is a fan of SOA!
