    Comics Bulletin - Olivia Woodward May 4, 2004

    It's a rare treat when a comic reaches for a tough thematic premise, like victimization. This title makes the ambitious effort, and does so tastefully without ever descending into crass "exploitation" power fantasy. The writing is clear and chilling in depicting Thorn not as some "kewl" vigilante avenger or "anti-hero," but as a seriously demented young woman, a victim who now is trapped in the perpetuation of an endless cycle of violence. It is the themes of fractured self and helplessness that make this a superb horror comic. I highly recommend it. Read Full Review
