El Diablo #1 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: El Diablo #1, about which I write the following sentences: "Nitz's story is a good one, too, although the first issue doesn't do much more than set the tone for the series and establish the new El Diablo's origin. But at least he gets it done in one issue -- no six-issue, slowly paced origin story here. Instead we meet Chato Santana, a gang leader and hardcore criminal, see him go down at the hand of his own compadre, and watch the Department of Justice do everything they can to get him to rat on his former friends. One of their cruel and unusual tactics is to place Santana, who's been paralyzed during the earlier betrayal, in the same room as Lazarus Lane, a fossil of a man who seems to make everyone around him die in their sleep. The threat doesn't break Santana, but there's more to Lane than just an old guy with a long white beard."
