    If you want your crime comic books cleanly drawn, with tonally rich colors, and starring a female protagonist that can absolutely, positively get s@#$ done, then head to your local comic shop this week and ask for her by name - Normandy Gold. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Ashley Gibbs Jun 28, 2017

    Normandy Gold #1 may not be for everyone because of some of the subjects tackled or maybe they're just not into period pieces. I do feel anyone who remembers the 70's fondly will have a bit of nostalgia reading this. Even more importantly, the good writing can appeal to those from a younger generation. If you like murder and mystery this could be the series for you, especially if you enjoy a woman taking charge in a "man's world". Normandy doesn't seem to be a character who backs down and I'm eager to see what happens next. The issue does not end on a frustrating cliffhanger, instead giving a great lead-in for the next issue.

    Normandy Gold showed me just how much I was missing a good ol' cops and robbers story from the Starsky and Hutch era. It's fun to read, the art leaps off the page, and the whole book simmers with sex and violence. I didn't know I needed these things as badly as I do now. I can't wait until issue #2 is available, and I suspect you'll be just as excited for it as I am. This one is a must read, in my opinion, as much for its story telling as for its story.

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Vlasaty Jun 15, 2017

    This is by no means a perfect book. But if you're a crime fiction fan or a lover of gritty noir/revenge/exploitation movies I think you'll find at least a few things to enjoy here. I'm excited to follow Normandy's story and have to say that this one feels like it's going to be the better of the Hard Case Crime/Titan books. And that's saying a lot because I enjoy the others as well. Read Full Review

    If you are looking for a gritty, hard-edged story you can't go wrong with Normandy Gold. It is definitely not one for the kids, though. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Jun 14, 2017

    There's a lot to like about Normandy Gold #1. It certainly doesn't pull any punches, fitting in perfectly with Hard Case's grittier and pulpier house vibe and delivering an adult crime thriller. Normandy is a compelling central character, even if she does belong squarely in the "troubled but tough detective" trope. Despite some structural problems which you can lay at the feet of kicking the story off quickly, Normandy Gold #1 is a satisfying pulpy debut and fans of seedier crime thrillers will find plenty to get them to stick around for next issue.
