Jun 8, 2017

RAVINA THE WITCH? reads like a fairy tale, but with much darker themes. The cute art is often jarring against the disturbing situations Ravina experiences.

Sonitus #1

SONITUS #1 doesn't give away much in the title, but diving in is the best way to read. The gritty art, living setting, and vague memories pull the reader in for a story that reaches far beyond the pages.

The Unsound #3

Aug 7, 2017

THE UNSOUND #3 is visually the strongest issue yet. Jack T. Cole's art is as terrific as it is harrowing. Cullen Bunn's writing is picking up speed, meaning this may be the calm before the storm.
