"THE DEVIL'S DEVIL," Part One
The new ongoing series from CHARLES SOULE (Daredevil, Death of Wolverine, Star Wars) and RYAN BROWNE (GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS) is COMING FOR YOU! A wizard has appeared in New York City, and he's casting wonderful spells, getting famous, getting rich-it's great! But it's not. This wizard has everyone fooled. He is actually an EVIL WIZARD, and EVIL THINGS are on the way. CURSE WORDS is a gonzo modern fantasy, full of darkness, light...and MAGIC.

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Nov 15, 2016

    A book about a magical antihero isn't new under the sun, but the wit and black comedy of Curse Words #1 feels fresh and loaded with enough charm to give it a distinct feel. It's a book both funny and yet one that doesn't treat its character as a joke. With a protagonist this intriguing, a concept this well executed, and a sense of humor this enjoyable, Curse Words #1 is bound to be among the most fun and compelling first issues you'll find.

    After reading the first issue of Curse Words, we're hooked. Charles Soule and Ryan Browne have a winner on their hands, no doubt. Though some of the humor is a little dated already, as jokes about popular music poke fun at the early 2000s, these are minor complaints. We're onboard for the adventures of Wizord, his Koala Bear familiar, and his sweet, sweet beard. Harry Potter can suck it, Wizord is the magic user we need. Read Full Review

While the pacing could have been a bit better, I sincerely enjoyed the ideas presented in this first issue and the promises of more entertainment yet to come.Curse Words just might be the most unabashed fun I've had this year.

    Outright Geekery - Brian A. Madrid Nov 20, 2016

    Curse Words is by far one of the most intriguing yet cosmic comic book I have ever read. And that's not entirely a bad thing. As so long the storyline is not hindered with too much magical wizardry and does not shorten character development, I'm fine with it. Read Full Review
