    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Nov 9, 2016

    I don’t believe these essays shouldn’t be defined as back matter, because that implies they’re only for the most dedicated of readers, nor do I consider it correct to label them as supplementary material because for the same reason. Instead they should be treated as required reading because not only are they poignant, but they ground the horror. The body horror might be the hook, but the most resonant idea is that the industry itself is a living nightmare for many. Without these essays, Zub, Hughes, Morissette-Phan, Marshall and Dillon wouldn’t be able to reinforce that there’s a truth to this book, and that’s the scariest thing of all. Read Full Review

    The only thing that bothers us about Glitterbomb #3 is the lack of answers we're given about what it actually is that Farah has become. Maybe we'll never actually find out. A nameless monster that picks and chooses it's victims. Maybe that's a little more terrifying than knowing. We're thoroughly impressed with how the writers have taken a downtrodden victim, turned her into a monster – and are still able to make her seem relatable. Overall, this scarily brilliant series grabs the reader by the arm and drags you along for the ride.Glitterbomb is the perfect antidote if you're sick of Hollywood culture that's for sure. This is easily one of the best unique series to hit the shelves this year. Read Full Review

    Glitterbomb continues to be intriguing as it captures the horror of Hollywood and the "monster inside you" story well. It's starting to fall into the trap shows like Lost fell into as there aren't enough answers to justify the reader's interest, but it's still early yet. Read Full Review

    So I'm significantly more impressed with this issue than the last, but it's still not enough for me to be excited about it. I'm wondering how many issues it will take for the story to finally bud, and for now it seems like we're seeing a lot of setting up of the story and characters. The cover is pretty interesting, and I love the pops of red to really set the hiding horror theme over the edge. Cover A is a lot more striking than the alternative cover, and I wish to see that kind of quality appearing in the main story soon. Read Full Review

    This series is on a bit of a slow burn, and I hope the ideas about celebrity go a bit deeper, but I enjoyed this issue.

    As a few others have said the writers are taking their time developing the story in this book. However it's such an interesting and unique subject it's more than keeping my attention.i love the essays at the end of the books, just shows how shady Hollywood is
