    Despite having an epic scope and a pretty huge roster of characters, Carbon Grey remains a ridiculously fun outing that deftly combines the sexy uber-violence of latter day Tarantino with a fantasy setting that promises plenty of high-minded adventure. As long as Nguyen and his team can keep up the pace, this might just be an early entry for best limited series of the year. Read Full Review

    "Carbon Grey" is an epic comic, and it knows it. This story is relatively simple and yet all of the extras added to it and the beautiful delivery make it better than you might think. There is something interesting on every single page and if this is just the debut I can't wait to see what else they have in store. This isn't the usual Image comic, as you might think of them as a genre. This is a new beast and it will kill for pleasure. Read Full Review

    After all that I do still think that this is a comic that I would recommend. I didn't quite understand it but I have to admit that I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to the second issue, all the time hoping that it will open the world out a bit more. Read Full Review

    Carbon Grey certainly isn't the easiest or simplest read out there, but the first issue does suggest that they have a good story to tell and this makes it worth reading despite its flaws. Read Full Review
