    The three witches are no more. Smertae wants nothing to do with the other two. The art on her is so beautifully done on her with the use of whites and light blues. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Feb 4, 2016

    In an unlikely twist, a moment comes when the three sisters, at odds from the very beginning, join together to bring about an end to the chaos they had incited. While each had their own role at one point, and seemed to fight for different values, the protectors of Alba are united in the tales resolution. This final piece of the story cements the brilliance of the creators. Toil and Trouble is an unexpected work of art. The last chapter holds as well made as those that came before it. Never would anyone have thought such a tale could come out of this premise. And yet, it is able to exist within the original framework, and may even enhance it. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Feb 6, 2016

    With its final issue, this miniseries clarifies its mission and strengthens itself against criticism. Toil and Trouble #6 opts for solid storytelling and quiet moments over bombast or fan-service. It's a declaration of who Scott is and how intelligent and honest her writing can be, not to mention a reminder of Nicole and Kelly Matthews' talents. Ultimately, Toil and Trouble is not a must read book, but it remains, from start to finish, an intelligent, beautiful piece of work with much to offer fans of fantasy, magic, literature or meaningful relationships between sisters, between parents and children, and between people and their history.
