The bad news? Everything is going wrong for ex-Dr. Benjamin Dane. His patient has been kidnapped. The FBI is closing in on him and he's bleeding out in a motel bathroom. The only thing that can save him now is vast amounts of luck, his Yakuza bodyguard and the six-year-old kid on his shoulder.

    These two men have created a great alternative to the types of stories that are too common in comics. Image Comics has a few really exceptional limited and ongoing series, all of which are far better than anything from DC or Marvel, and Harvest is definitely on that list. There are so many things that this series does that simply cannot be done in mainstream comics and I love it for that. Harvest is definitely an amazing series and I hope to see a sequel at some point as well as I believe that Lieberman and Lorimer aren't done with these characters just yet. Read Full Review

    Colin Lorimer's artwork really seals the deal here. Lieberman's voice is distinct, but Lorimer truly brings it to life with his striking page design, murky world, and effective use of color. The color in particular really hones in on the shifting tone and complements the mood perfectly. I look forward to more of this bloody world Lieberman has created, but only if Lorimer also returns to give it life. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 2, 2013

    I have to say that this is one of my favorite series to read each month and I’m actually glad to see that it’s continuing. I hope that it’s not dragged out indefinitely, but if it continues to find a way to be interesting and thrilling each month then I’m all for it. Hell, I’ll even be happy if Dane and Mariko make it out alive and head down to a third world country fixing kids cleft lips or something. This is a very good series that you should be checking out and if you thought it was a simple black market organ stealing book then boy are you ever wrong. Read Full Review

    I love this mini series. It started with a bang, dropped a little bit towards the middle, but came back full throttle in the end. As your doctor I recommend five doses of all five issues of Harvest or wait for a full overdose and get the TPB (that's the last of my medicalsurgical innuendos & puns I swear). Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Jan 2, 2013

    As a whole, however, the series has been a success. Its dark and gritty, both in plots and consistent artwork. That said, I could happily read issues #1 through #4 as a semi-conclusive story. The idea of Ben dying on the bathroom floor seems a more fitting ending, as it certainly added suspense, drama and a cathartic impact. Yet its quick resolution and new ending in issue #5 doesn't do the series the justice it deserves at times. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Jan 3, 2013

    Overall this has been an unusually good series, pulling together a lot of detail and managing a nice " and terrifying " sense of realism. It's definitely not pleasant to think that one of the most profitable businesses in the world involves cutting organs out of desperate people and putting them into rich ones, but insofar as an thriller centering on this subject can be wonderful, this has been a wonderful thriller. It's also likely to make for a riveting one-sitting read in trade paperback, so for those of you who have been waiting, pre-order it already! Other than the ending " which errs too far on the abstract side of things, at the same time as baiting us for a sequel, which doesn't seem to be in the cards at the moment " this has been a satisfyingly scary read.
