    The bottom line is that this book is too fucking good to not be reading. If you're not reading by now you're just mistreating yourself. If you love the comic book medium, then there's no reason you shouldn't check out Tomboy. Read Full Review

    'Tomboy' is a sophisticated, smart, thriller that will chill you to the bone. Goodwin spins the magical girl trope on its head and turns her into a possibly halucinating vigilante killer. The art belies the deadly motives behind the characters on the page and that makes for a compelling read. Get 'Tomboy,' talk about, share it, and enjoy it with twisted glee. Read Full Review

    The plot and the setup are really the story here. This is a comic that requires a solid commitment, as checking it out from time-to-time or even just jumping on are tough. If you are looking for something that is a bit Harrow County meets CSI, this is right up your alley. The arc may boil all the way up to a high temperature and it may be one of those quirky things in your pull that pays back way more than you invest. It is an interesting take on a few different common themes, and you are going to need to stick with it for a bit before you really get a feel for whether or not it is a keeper. Tomboy #4 shows solid effort and a bit of a hook, but it may not net any big bait. It's good sophomore level storytelling, but it did not grab me and shake itself out as something distinguishable from the pack beyond the plot. For fans of the crime-story genre, it is a definite keeper, though. You just have to be in that particular line to get the most out of this. Read Full Review
