    Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this book. It's like nothing I've ever read before. I'd say it's a tour-de-force but that would make me a douchebag. So, I'll just say that reading The Dregs is an experience. And I will forever recommend this book to every single person in the history of the world. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Mar 3, 2017

    'The Dregs' is a rock-solid story with innovative art and classic crime thriller bones. It sheds an unflinching light on the dilemma of homelessness while finding dignity in its hero. The only thing that would make this better is revisiting that stunning opening from the first issue and examine that some more as I'm sure they will. Black Mask has a winner on their hands.

    The world of The Dregs expands in the second issue, as the mystery gets deeper, the characters get weirder and the hero becomes both more relatable and a little more unsure of himself. Solid mystery storytelling. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Mar 12, 2017

    The Dregs is a solid pulp detective story, however it has been somewhat declawed by the spoiler-filled opening pages of the series. It led with such an amazing hook that I'm anxious to get back to it. Since we already know what's really going on, we have to become greatly invested in Arnold's life and his investigation. Writers Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson accomplish this well, creating an interesting, sympathetic, albeit flawed human being looking for answers in a screwed up world that has all but forgotten him.

    Doom Rocket - Matthew C. Brown Mar 3, 2017

    Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler had me hooked with the book's opening issue (in more ways than one), but I should hope that my first time doesn't become the best it's ever going to be, with each subsequent installment leaving me "chasing the dragon," as they say. Here's the thing " I'm still hooked. But I want to know: Where's that confounded dragon, man? Read Full Review
