    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic Jan 15, 2011

    Of the two story arcs so far, Gula is my favorite, not only because of the amazing near-cerulean color tones of the original printings, but because of the way Fraction changes what the book is, turning it from a solo book about this protagonist doing counter-missions for the bad guys into a book into an ensemble book about said protagonists absence. The amazing bit of Gula is how the story its has its own feel, one distinct from Luxuria, which, on one level, is an amazing exploration of what a story is, how you can take a collection of characters and scenarios and ideas and milieu and remix them into something. Same instruments, different sound, making for the follow-up effort that punches the very concept of sophomore slump in its stupid face. This is the best pop album youll listen to all year. And its a comic book. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jan 12, 2011

    Fraction's scripting in Gula is slightly superior to Luxuria as well, if only because the writer shows a bit more restraint and focus in presenting this wacky world. Longtime fans will come into Gula knowing that Cass himself sits out a large portion of the arc. That may seem like a downer, but his sister Zephyr and her partner Kubark Benday make for a more than suitable replacements. Plenty of other returning faces help lend some consistency and familiarity to the series as well. This issue is a wildly fun start to an engaging and ultimately tragic adventure for the Quinn family. With Icon's Luxuria trade also hitting the stands this week, there's no reason not to dice into this odd but delightful little series. Read Full Review
