Norman is a blue-eyed, blond-haired psychopath. He's also a little kid. And he really likes to kill people. Queen Bee of the Schoolyard, Grace, seems to have a knack for it, too. But she's nothing like Norman! He's a sicko. Grace is just... enacting a little vengeance. That's all.

    Graphic Policy - christopher scott author Jul 4, 2016

    I will admit the semi-cartoon art style by Silas manages to fit in surprisingly well into this strange tale. While I imagine more violent scenes are to come in later issues, the violence is less cartoony and more humorous than one would expect. Silas ability to add in a depressing environment of the orphanage despite the bright lights is brilliant. Read Full Review

    In short, this issue is a great way to start off a really weird-but-cool series. Again, it’s not for people who are easily offended. You’ve got to be able to stomach the imaginative ways that children come up with to kill people, as well as some sociologically stereotypical jokes. If you can handle that much, this series is going to be really entertaining. Silas has done an awesome job creating some disturbingly funny material, and I cannot wait to see more. Read Full Review

    While my brain was screaming for other distractions, Norman is whittling down certain classmates. his teacher is in love with a mad scientist who keeps cloning a little girl that Norman seems to be continually killing. There's a variety of antics and jokes that cloud the story, but keep us amused. An anime horror farce isn't my cup of tea, but the writing was actually pretty entertaining. I only wish it was in a different art style. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 8, 2016

    I'm being hard on this issue because I think it was a huge misstep. It's really hard to image that new readers will understand what's going on and pick up the second issue which is a shame because this is a solid series. That's been proven with two graphic novels" that new readers are likely to be completely unaware of. Because of that and the fact that this is a really complex first issue, I'm scoring it what I'm scoring it. Read Full Review

    This book is far too cute to be this dark. With a cast of characters that look like Funko Pops this should be a happy-go-lucky title of rainbows and lollipops but if I Hate Fairyland has taught us anything it's that cute kids killing things can be awesome.This book feels a lot weirder then I was expecting and it works against it as it feels very random and the writing is choppy and broken, I'm not sure what language it's translated from but it feels like something was lost in translation. The idea is solid, an 8-year-old obsessed with serial killers and enjoys killing people should be hilarious and fun but it feels forced and dull. The art however is simply gorgeous, I cannot fault the art in this book on a single page it's a joy to look at.It's dark and sad in places and just not fun at all. I was looking forward this one after seeing the cover but Sadly this only gets 2 stars from me. Read Full Review
