    Have you been reading ZERO? If not, you owe it to yourself to pick up the first trade and last issue. Edward Zero is a strange and complicated character. As we see the different missions in his life, you never know whats going to happen next. This issues ending is a prime example of that. Matt Taylors art fits this particular story nicely. He captures the mood and delivers the final scene perfectly. ZERO is the comic people should be talking about. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Kyle Overkill Apr 22, 2014

    Zero never slows up even when the characters take time to slow down. For an issue that on the surface is more grounded and less about action this may be one of the most important issues in the series yet. Zero continues to be as exciting and complex each issue as it was the very first time you picked it up. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Apr 25, 2014

    Zero #7 is Matt Taylors first full length comic work, but you would never be able to tell. His work is clear and detailed. He borrows from the books previous artists without ever aping their style. Both Taylors pencils and Kots script strike a happy medium by keeping thingsambiguous without calling attention to itself. Zero is a great book that makes excellentuse of its creator's talents Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Apr 23, 2014

    There is certainly a fine line that is played with here in terms of opacity. At times, writers can get overzealous in how much they are teasing and concealing and suddenly the script is a series of random puzzle pieces that winds up mostly frustrating the reader. Kot never crosses into this territory, and yet readers begin and end the issue completely in the dark. Taylor is an excellent choice for the issue as his panel work and pencil work handle the script incredibly well. Issue #7 of Zero is another excellent installment in the series. Read Full Review

    I mean, it could be worse. But it could also be better. Zero is a visionary product, to be sure, but it's definitely a challenge, as well. It's unclear to me whether it would be easier to read this comic as a whole, or to break it apart as an episodic work - even if the taciturn lead character makes it tougher to follow. Technically speaking, this book is still executed well, but it's getting increasingly hard for this book to stand on flash alone. There needs to be some more substance to Zero, something deeper to resonate and remember. Otherwise, this book may live up to its name. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Apr 23, 2014

    Sorry this is such a short review, but there's not much else to say, other than to reiterate how painfully disappointing this series has become after issue five. Kot's writing style is always lofty, and usually I enjoy the puzzle, but this was a lemon. Maybe it's me; maybe I missed something or perhaps I just don't "get it" anymore, I don't know. But after this issue, I'm not sure that I want to even try anymore. Read Full Review
