    A promising start, “House of Gold and Bones” #1 explores the fear of the unknown in interesting ways. Though the issue leaves a lot of unanswered questions, I look forward to reading how Taylor will develop the mystery. Read Full Review

    Its one of those series that you can tell is far-out, and you are not sure if its worth the time yet, 'cause far-out is dangerous turf for any storyteller. Whether this one can meet the expectations it sets for itself, only time will tell. Read Full Review

    Even though this is just the first issue, I was still hoping for a certain amount of resolution, just to better understand what's going on.

    The other downside is just that you really have no clue what is actually going on by the end, save bad guy is bad and don't get your shit pushed in or what have you so despite its unique presentation it is not the most unique set up. It isn't terrible just a tad irritating to when you are actually engaged in the story and are racking your brains trying to put clues together. Still the downside could be much worse and really don't take too much away from the story if you're interested in giving this a once over. Read Full Review
