Between the evil people running rampant and the surprising amount of nudity on each page, it's no wonder Fraction turned to Image for a publishing outlet. Even Vertigo or MAX might have issues with the book's content. That said, Casanova is nothing if not a silly, almost light-hearted series. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but those that push through the burn will find a lot to love. Read Full Review
This book is a refreshing antidote to plodding and dull superhero comics, and even if this issue falls a little short of the book's usually extremely high standards, there's still more imagination and innovation here than you'll find in most mainstream comics. I'm grateful to Image for taking a chance on such an unusual off-the-wall book, and giving Casanova a home where it can thrive. I don't know what the sales are like on this book, but I'd heartily recommend taking a chance on the series for anyone who hasn't checked it out yet. The stories are always accessible, each issue is fairly self-contained, and the back-matter from Fraction and Moon adds a lot of charm, providing several pieces of concept art along with a commentary on the story which adds extra depth to its ideas. Even if this isn't the finest issue of the book so far, it's still a highly entertaining way to spend your $1.99. Read Full Review
