    Florida Geek Scene - Zackery Cote May 15, 2013

    The art is done by Nick Runge, who does a great job of drawing the many subtle intricacies of a jungle setting. The leaves and trees are well distinguished, rather than just being lumps of green that the reader must simply imagine to be shrubbery. The characters are well-defined, and readers should easily be able to tell which character is which after reading for a bit, though more often than I believe is necessary, their features are shadowed by their hats. Fever Ridge is very complex, and ultimately seems to be a character driven story. Even after reading 32 pages, I'm not quite sure what the plot of the story is, but I find myself not minding because I enjoy reading to find out what is in store for the characters. Perhaps you may find the story boring if you have no interest in World War II or war-ridden jungle settings, but I'd definitely recommend this comic to readers. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig May 8, 2013

    Our writer, Mike Heimos, and artist, Nick Runge, bring a truthful insight into the Pacific war. When we think of World War II we tend to think about Germany and the movies surrounding this area or you think of Ben Affleck marrying his best friend’s knocked-up girlfriend. Either way we don’t jump on the difficulties of these soldiers in a new area fighting far from home and the main war zone. All and all I am not disappointed that I gave this comic a shot but I don’t think I will be going back to the miniseries. It was all just too drawn out. Read Full Review
