A down-on-his-luck bartender. A Yakuza's wife. A teenager with a penchant for handguns. They may not appear to have anything in common, but they're all part of the Killbox. The debut series by Tom Riordan brings a vicious game of violence to the streets of Los Angeles, where carefully selected players are picking each other off one by one. Don't miss this electrifying and brutal book illustrated in blistering inks by Nathan Gooden (DEADEYE).

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Apr 27, 2016

    Reading the book, it is obvious there are a slew of influences on show; from Hostel to The Hunger Games with elements of The Purge. These are duly noted by Riordan and it is refreshing to see writer at least nod towards what has gone before, especially when the idea of the book isn't the most original. That then is the main problem of the book for me. Despite the promise of "put a stamp on it", at this point there is little evidence of the stamp on show. Fans of the movies and books mentioned above will no doubt find a lot to like in this book. For me, I have been there, seen that and don't particularly want to revisit. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 29, 2016

    The end of the issue was a bit flat, but I was already hooked on reading more. It was just a clumsy set up for the second issue and a bit of convenient writing to prolong one character's life over another. I'll be back for more and if you're interested in a Battle Royale situation happening in the streets of modern L.A., then you should check out Killbox. Read Full Review
