    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 5, 2014

    A decent first issue that has good action and a decent plot. Unfortunately it stumbles its way through a good portion of exposition. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 6, 2014

    Grimm Fairy Tales presents Masumi #1 is a solid start to what could be a promising mini-series. It has some room for improvement but the team does enough right to have my attention. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Aug 5, 2014

    Everything looks flat and dull and cheap, like they didn't have it in the budget to create an actually cool looking section of Tokyo but just rented out a couple warehouses for all the action to take place along. That's the big risk of doing this kind of a kung-fu comic is that it will rise or fall on the artwork more than anything else, that's the nature of a Kung-Fu story; it's like a pressure cooker of ethics and philosophy and duty and sacrifice that builds and builds till the emotion of it all boils over into a cathartic fight scene, but without the spectacle of those fights or the real drama behind them everything is left just feeling empty and more than a little dull, sad to say I can't recommend this comic.

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Aug 8, 2014

    Writer Joe Tyler's script just doesn't carry much umf to it, or at least not enough to propel Masumi into the forefront of the Zenescope universe. Unfortunately, the book's artwork is nothing to write home about. The characters' expressions are blank and stiff, leaving very little room for emotion. Maybe chapter two will have more bang to it, but Masumi: Blades of Sin #1 falls short of the mark. Read Full Review
