    With the seeds planted in this issue and the actual event not kicking off until around Bloodshot #10, my faith is reinstated. The connection built here just makes perfect sense as to what Bloodshot and Psiots have in common, but also there is ample time to develop that before "Harbinger Wars" begins. With those two facts in mind I am definitely looking forward to what Valiant has in store for us this spring. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Jan 18, 2013

    All told, we're still in love with “Li'l Depressed Boy”. It's stayed consistently emotional and subtle and sweet and heartening for fifteen issues now, but it still doesn't feel like it's repeating itself. This book keeps avoiding that trap " the one where we stop caring, and tell LDB to grow up " because LDB is growing, right before our eyes. And as he goes along, he's subverting everything that's “little” and “depressed” about himself and his situation, just by being able to be happy. That shoe is definitely going to drop soon, if the last page of this issue is any indication, but with all the emotional development happening here, my feeling is that at the end of it all we'll still have an LDB who's grown and changed for the better. And that's pretty exciting. Read Full Review

    I challenge you, even if you are not a fan and have not been following Li'l Depressed Boy, to read this issue and not smile as LDB and Spike hold hands or gasp audibly at the reveal on the final page. Read Full Review

    I really enjoy this series and it’s a prime example of the amazing things that you can only do in comics. This is never going to be made into a big budget movie or even a TV show. Sure you can probably make some terrible cell phone game tie-in for it, but who the hell wants to see that? ...Okay I kind of do want to see that now that I mention it, but the point is that the integrity of this story is something that could only possibly exist in comic book form. It’s what makes it so damn special and if you’ve been taking it for granted then you need to take a moment and realize what it is you’re holding in your hands. A story that can only exist as it is.
