    Major Spoilers - Danielle Luaulu Feb 28, 2013

    This series is definitely different from Zenescope's usual line of work and it's a welcome break to see them branch out thematically. With a more realistic looking female Mowgli and a story about power within the established system, this is a fun more grown-up take on the Jungle Book and a good sequel. However, it is a bit pricey for what it is and one might be lost if they haven't read the original series. Flip through it first and, if you have the extra cash, pick up a copy. Or just wait for the trade paperback. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 27, 2013

    This series definitely stands out to me from other Zenescope series. I think that because it's so different from their other titles is what makes it interesting and enjoyable. I do wish that Miller was put in charge of the story more as there are times his true writing voice doesn't come out. Things like the underwater choking scene are something I expect from a Zenescope title, but this series doesn't feel like a Zenescope title and shouldn't be forced to be. Growth is important and I think if Zenescope is going to improve on franchise like this one, the writers need to be allowed to cut out things the company is "known for" or they risk changing for the better. There are plenty of other publishers that were at one time known for a particular style or franchise that had to change in order to move the company forward and this series shows that Zenescope is on the cusp of change.
