    The Story: Tomasi brings this story to a heart pounding, explosive and exciting conclusion. The conflict between the characters was great and I loved every tense moment of the story. The story does great by its premise and every moment of triumph and tragedy was earned by the characters. The story has a great theatrical feel and I could see it as a live action series some time down the road.

    The Art: Simic delivers some fantastic imagery throughout the issue. The visuals are amazing and filled with thrills.

    The story ends in an uneasy kind of peace. The final showdown with the killer features fire, rain, and a whole lot of bullets. It’s caught somewhere in between the real and the unreal. It’s not over-the-top darkness like Frank Miller’s Hard Boiled, but it’s scarcely the kind of complex realism that is so very, very rare in police procedural dramas. It’s just…kind of a fun trip into a Silence of the Lambs sort of drama that never quite goes far enough in any direction to register much of an impression.

    With a predictable script and subpar artwork, this miniseries fails to stick the landing. It’s a shame, because it showed a lot of promise, right up until the end.

    Blood Tree ends with a final confrontation between Detective Azzaro and the serial killer he’s been tailing on weeks. This case has become a personal one on several levels for Azzaro, so I was expecting a bit more than what we got in the last issue. This wasn’t a bad crime comic, but it felt a little too safe and too procedural for my liking. The serial killer’s motives were interesting, but the comic really struggled to define itself and separate itself from the countless other cop stories out there.
