Nola is a story of how unforeseen events can have life changing consequences. In parallel with New Orleans, we watch Nola go from a beautiful woman with few cares to a dangerous one, much like what happened to the city itself. Even her name, Nola, could be broken down into New Orleans, LA. Her story is unique, but at the same time it is the story of the city. It may be an ugly story, but it is one you will enjoy. I'm giving this first issue of Nola 5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review
Nola is total pulp and I mean that in the best way. It's a modern-day blaxploitation comic without the pastiche but complete with evil white men who deserve a good killing. Let's just hope that Nola is as mean as it promises. Read Full Review
Damian Coucerio is the latest in a series of artists with a similar style. It's one we see so often in Boom titles that it's almost like a house style for the publisher. Couceiro boasts a Michael Lark/Paul Azaceta-esque style that suits the darker leanings of this story. It's especially effective in the more grounded scenes; he conveys the characters' humanity incredibly well. He also does a fine job with a double-page spread that conveys the devastation that befell the Big Easy as a result of hurricane Katrina. Read Full Review
