I could only tell two characters for certain throughout the whole book: David and Olga. All you need is a hat or scarf or certain hairstyle to distinguish characters in graphic novels. It's not that hard! As a result, the plot was lost in me in several places, though I did understand this one better than The Coldest City.

Liked this one better than the first one, The Coldest City; this is sort of a prequel.

Maybe I only care about Lorraine. Also as much as I like the art style I find it hard to remember who everyone is.

It was much more exciting than "The Coldest City" and I liked the background that we get on David Percival. It was good and kind of sad to see how he ended up being. But this one was more exciting than the other book.

I received a copy this book from the publisher in exchange for a review!

I started reading this book with very high expectations. 'Spycraft' is the stuff of my dreams. However, the book had a sort of bumpy start and wasn't very engaging. The Coldest Winter was old-school spy tale set in Berlin of 1981-82. KGB officers at odds with MI6, with a bit of American interruption. The book picked up speed after the first few pages, and was quick read after that. The illustration style made it all quite confusing for me; the characters looked quite similar.

I was just shocked at how much gun violence they were engaging in, without attracting any attention. Cool stuff, though!

Many thanks to the publisher for making this copy available as an ARC. I'm planning to read the other one soon!
