    I don't know how well 'Tomboy' sells but I'm sure it isn't enough. In some ways, I want to keep this comic to myself and savor the joy of an indie book that isn't part of some great big conglomerate but mine alone. However, no matter how selfish I may be 'Tomboy' deserves to sell out each month requiring second and third printings. It's that good. It's smart, immersive, disturbing, and uniquely original.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 28, 2016

    This is a tough issue to review and score because while it's a step down from the series norm, it's still a lot better than so many other series out there. Especially issues that are at or past the eighth issue mark. If this was one of those series, I would likely score it lower, but since it's been consistent and is still a solid issue in the series, it gets what it gets. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Sep 27, 2016

    Michelle Wong's artwork is more than capable, and as I noted earlier, the design for the title character's empowered form is sharp. However, there's a cartoony look throughout the book - mainly in the character's faces - that runs contrary to the harsh and intense nature of the plot. I was surprised there wasn't an inkier look at play here, given the downtrodden, serious and stark elements that are front and centre throughout the story. It's clear the creators have some real storytelling chops, though, but some editorial guidance to ensure the inclusion of more exposition would be wise - or at least the crafting of some "previously in Tomboy" text.

    The art is good as usual. There is also some nice dialogue, which is pretty common for this series and refreshing to see as a lot of comics dialogue is lacking. While there isn't a lot of action in this issue, Goodwin seems to be skillfully ratcheting-up the intensity of this series as it progresses and each issue pulls me in a bit more, even if the overall pace of the series seems (to me at least) to have slowed down a bit.
