    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Mar 16, 2016

    The overall story is quite a simple one, though it is well crafted by all involved. If I had any quibble to make, it would be that the main protagonist seems to catch on to what is happening way too quickly, given the amount of time given to the setup of the Goddess and her original cast of followers. That said, the book is a very enjoyable read, with great visuals, if you manage to stick with it. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Mar 15, 2016

    This first issue was definitely a wonderful premiere. Wohl does a great job with characterization, background history, characterization and tone. There's a mystery going on that Wohl lets you figure out the majority of it, but hasn't been fully revealed. Cafaro and Hartman do a strong job with art, even with the panels that look a bit rushed. There is a depth here that isn't seen in many other issues. A very strong first issue. Read Full Review

    Santeria: The Goddess Kissis an ambitious comic, and I appreciate the attempt to pack one comic with a variety of locations, characters, and moral questions. Though the first issue was weighed down by exposition, it presented some exciting themes, and maybe the next few issues will offer fewer words and more characterization. If so, I look forward to reading them. Read Full Review
