    Fly is just a great comic, a difficult but worthy subject to tackle that seems like it is going to show every aspect of drug use, while also maintaining a fantasy twist. Read Full Review

    The biggest problem with this comic book is visual, but I'm not referring to interior artist Eric J's work.

This is definitely worth checking out. Read Full Review
