    Copperhead #9 is the perfect set-up going into an extremely dangerous rescue mission. If this issue showed us anything, it's that no one is completely safe.The pacing is fluid yet fast and exciting. The dialogue is measured but concise. It's simply one of the best comics produced because of near flawless execution. Read Full Review

    One of the most essential qualities to telling a thoroughly compelling story is its ability to rouse the question, and then what happened?!? Copperhead #9 will have the reader doing this before each flip of the page right up until the end – you guys, when do we get to see inside The Bastion?!?! Look, we know, the Western Sci-fi genre has been done a lot. Fine. Maybe you dont even like Westerns, or youre not into things set in outer space for some truly bizarre reason. Whatever, it doesnt matter. Copperhead is in a league of its own. The only thing one needs to get thoroughly engrossed with what Faerber, Godlewski, Riley, and Mauer are creating is an appreciation for the craft of storytelling. Awesome characters, clever utilization of expected tropes, gorgeous visuals, and the tantalizing promise of even better things to come. What more can you do? Copperheads got my imagination. Got no choice. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Lance Lambert Jul 29, 2015

    The Copperhead team continues to create a story that after the smoke clears and the tumble weeds roll, stands unharmed with a glance to readers that has Clint Eastwood shaking in his boots. There are tough questions, difficult decisions and lots of gunfire. Clara is an exceptional protagonist, but there other characters equally as interesting. Copperhead #9 is a must buy and if you haven't picked up the first 8 you might as well save yourself the extra trip. Next month Copperhead #10 seals the end of another arc and I can't wait.

    It's a bit of a slower issue, but it showcases what the book can do with its two sides. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Jul 29, 2015

    I did, however, like the way this issue's narrative synced up with the last one. We got some answers about who attacked Boo's captors and there were some interesting parallels drawn between the two groups. It should be really fun to see how everything hits the fan next month with Boo and Clara both inside the outlaw town's gates"but I'm still a lot more interested the storyline from the beginning of the issue.
