"When well-meaning Jason discovers a disembodied finger that appears to be alive, it quickly becomes the sole focus of his life. He names the digit ""Wendy,"" learns to communicate with it via ""tap code,"" and discovers that the one thing Wendy wants more than anything else is a living human body to attach to. Just how far will Jason go to satisfy his ambulatory appendage?"

    Surprisingly, The Living Finger doesnt feel like its going to be schlock horror for the sake of it. The premise is a wonderful set-up for murderous hilarity, but the first issue establishes a tragically funny human reasoning for the inevitable supernatural mayhem. Theres a genuine heart and charm permeating throughout that makes me think this series is going to be a winner. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Many plot-based questions remain after the last panel of this issue, but the characterization of Jason causes most of my confusion. Reactions to this protagonist come in two mutually exclusive forms: apathy or disgust. Either Jason is an empty vessel that carries the reader from moment to moment, or he is an intensely lonely sociopath who falls in love with Wendy, his pet finger. Hopefully, future issues will point us in the right direction. Read Full Review

    The Living Finger shows promise. The aesthetics make the series a treat to see, the story seems promising. The fact still remains that we're wanting more, more buildup with more context than just what is there. More importantly, we want a connectable main character, and Jason so far half-attempts this effort. There's no doubt that we will see more as the story develops, but it feels that the first issue missed certain opportunities to do so within the first issue. The Living Finger is going to be series to keep an eye out on as the story rolls out but it will not surprise many if people fail to show up. Read Full Review
