    DrumHellar #5 is a tightly executed comic that shows growth and range and gives you more than enough reason to continue reading this comic. Read Full Review

    Rossmo and Link are perfectly comfortable selling their world as is, and frankly the book is infinitely better for it. Maybe the answers are just lying around the corner, maybe they are far off, and maybe they dont even exist. Whatever the context, Drumhellar concludes its first arc in a courageous and thought-provoking manner that is sure to leave you salivating for the second chapter. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Zackery Cote Feb 26, 2014

    The addition of new characters is welcome. The story really needed a third person to serve as a sort of interpreter. Drum's proclivity for going off on insane, supernatural rants and leaving Padma to stand there with a blank look was getting a little annoying. The addition of a new character who can see the ghosts but doesn't know quite as well as Drum what is going on steers a middle ground. She serves to put the reader's perspective in the story, granting a view that can see the supernatural things that are happening, but doesn't really understand them. Where the story goes from here is anybody's guess, but at least there is the possibility for change. Read Full Review

    Issue #5 may be the end of this particular line of stories, but there are more to come in a couple of months. The bar may be closed right now, but it will open again. I can't wait to get back in, pull up a chair, and enjoy that amazing mixed concoction blended up by Rossmo and Link to sheer perfection. Keep em coming guys. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Mar 5, 2014

    Drumhellar #5 just doesn't do it for me, especially with the rather flat ending for its first arc. The writing is subpar and overly complicated, the dialogue is bad, the characters are just not compelling, and it was poorly structured and put together. The artwork is divisive and while you may like that part of the book, it's not enough to save this. Read Full Review
