Random Acts of Violence will set you back about seven bucks. A bargain at 72 pages. The multi-layered story is excellent, far better than the most recent horror films spat out by Hollywood--as well as the lion's share of notable independent films. The artwork by Caracuzzo and Mounts exceeds the majority of most fare on the racks--Amanda Conner's Power Girl being an obvious exception. Read Full Review
The illustrations are the redeeming feature of the entire thing, with Caracuzzo drawing the hell out of it. Im blanking on names right now, but the influence of Euro horror comics is strong in this one (check out the leads who look like the main characters from a violent Italian detective comic rather than grungy, struggling comic artists from New York). Id love to see Caracuzzos future work, perhaps in service to a book that has a bit more clarity to it. Read Full Review
Honestly, I found nothing positive at all in Random Acts of Violence, which is a shame because the preview really interested me with its captivating monologue and artwork. Unfortunately that preview was the best that this book had to offer. Even the artwork of the preview was the best that was to be found in the issue. I cant recommend this story to anyone unless you are a fan of either the creators (Palmiotti, Gray, and Giancarlo Caracuzzo) or terribly executed stories. Read Full Review
