    Multiversity Comics - Drew Bradley Oct 3, 2014

    The pacing, the dialogue, the characters, the moody shading and evocative facial expressions " everything about this book makes me wonder why these creators aren't household names yet. After just one issue, this book has so much going for it that it's already earned multiple spots in my best of 2014 list. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Oct 1, 2014

    The title tells us that Wormwood is going to be damned. While we only see the seeds of that here, it is a tense and captivating introduction. This first issue reads a lot like the first season of Breaking Bad; a smart, innocent man turning to crime when it seems necessary. It's certainly a page turner and I'll be keen to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Whats missing in this story, unfortunately, is a sense of itself. Granted, its a copy of a copy of a copy, sure, and thats fine, but it never catches hold! Even the art itself, byChee(Tag) the simple lines and muted grey hues convey a vague overall atmosphere. Hopefully in the next few issues readers will be treated to a break into act three rather than the act two holding pattern thatThe Damnation of Charlie Wormwoodseems stuck in.The Damnation of Charlie Wormwood Read Full Review
