CBR Review: The Death-Defying 'Devil #1

I recently reviewed The Death-Defying 'Devil #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Since the goal is to throw into question the validity of the ‘Devil’s claim that he is who he appears to be, having him silent and a closed book throughout the issue works against that purpose.

How are we supposed to know, or care, if this is the real ‘Devil? Say that he isn’t and there’s no pay-off, because it’s just a silent guy in a costume."
