    I will admit the three color atmosphere, was a surprise at first. Yet the more I read it the more I became enthralled by it. That atmosphere manages to work wonderfully in this conceptual comic and it's great to see James Whynot, who does double duty as artist, go this route. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jun 2, 2016

    Bolts #1 was a very interesting romp into a world of fantasy. Whynot crafts a new world here that has all kinds of dangers while also not being afraid to show us visually the depths of our surroundings. Whynot gives enough to introduce us to the characters, the status quo and our target for the book. Yet, Frank was a bit lack luster at first. While his reactions were authentic, I didn't feel like I could attach myself to him till after he had gotten his body mangled. Otherwise, Frank is an ok guy, just needing a bit more development. The art was sharp and unique. And I do enjoy the feel for the book and characters. And interesting read that can get better from here. Read Full Review

    The strange thing is that I didn't hate this book. I didn't love it, but I've read much worse. There was something that was entertaining about it, perhaps in a "B" movie way. I don't know if I'll pick up the next issue though. This wasn't a smooth ride by any means and in a lot of ways comes off like someone's first draft making it all the way to the printer. It could use some more polish, but it's not terrible. Read Full Review
