    Later, you may forgive yourself for missing the first story arc in this series; there really wasn't an incredible amount of hype for the book and it was easy to overlook. I'm not sure you'll be able to make that same excuse this time around, so self-forgiveness probably won't come as easily. Besides, hype or no, it's still a great comic and deserves all the eyeballs it can get. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jess Camacho May 15, 2015

    "Copperhead" #7 is definitely a bridge to something bigger but it does a very fine job exploring gender roles and Clara's personality. As much as I loved this issue, I do think it's time to get some more backstory on Boo. I want to know his story and I want to know what makes him tick. I want him to be as fleshed out as Clara is. This is a series that doesn't get the kind of publicity it deserves. If you're a fan of westerns or Firefly, this is something worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Dating: ain't nobody got time for that. Adept storytelling on all fronts with lively, fully believable characters, Copperhead #7 proves that one doesn't need unbridled action sequences to tell a compelling story. Large-scale ideas are only strengthened when the focus can shift to the smaller moments that reveal worlds about those that inhabit them. Plenty of narrative roads are being laid to investigate and explore down the line, but the small-scale intricacies and nuances of Copperhead keep this as engaging a book you're likely to find. Everyone needs a little love before delivering that sledgehammer of old town justice, and lucky for us this series has both in droves. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Tshepo Mokoena May 13, 2015

    Iit's another solid installment for the series, nothing too ground breaking, hopefully it can pick a little more steam and get into the meat already for the next issue. Add it to your pull list, you will not regret it all. Honestly this is looking to become a flagship title for Image in the future Read Full Review
