    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Feb 6, 2014

    Is this a good issue to start with? No. Not even a little. But the fact that you can get the whole series up to and including this point for under six bucks means that you absolutely need to catch up. I get the feeling we just hit the very tip-top of the roller coaster, and we're about to go down fast. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson Jan 24, 2014

    “High Crimes” had an incredibly strong opening last year and we called it a “must-buy”. A year and five issue on and things have only improved. The story is twisting and turning at every step, the stakes are raising with every foot of mountain climbed and the boiling point of the tensions between characters is soon going to erupt, making this a tense thrillride of a comic. This is the kind of white-knuckle storytelling rarely found outside of film and Sebela and Moustafa have distilled it in a comic positively overflowing with style and research. Despite writing one of the most consistently best comics of the last year, Sebela and Moustafa still have nowhere near the recognition they deserve as storytellers making them, as they say, definitely ones to watch.

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jan 22, 2014

    The story comes full circle with a closing moment that almost feels more impactful, but in a much more subtle way, as a counter to that sense of invisibility that Zan reflected on. Though the on-screen events of this issue stay a bit more even-keel, it is a very well done issue and takes a moment to remind readers that the easiest parts of this journey are in the past. It's only going to increase in danger, tension, and likely in quality of storytelling as High Crimes moves into the second half of its tale. Read Full Review
