What kind of thief leaves a single feather at the scene of the crime? Perhaps one that has a talking, painting-eating, oversized Egret as a pet-a pet that gets more oversized the more paintings he eats! Sounds fun, right? Except for some of the people now determined to stop this thief, who is anything but! From John Layman, appetizing writer of Chew, and Sam Keith, captivating creator & artist of The Maxx and co-creator of Sandman, comes the series that HAD to be told at AfterShock!

    Comic Bastards - Levi Remington May 17, 2017

    John Layman and Sam Kieth continue to impress with a stylistically ambitious comic that dazzles with its unique, beautiful visuals and surprises with a story born in strangeness, adhering to no sort of predictable tone. It still feels like we are in the setup stage, but enough is here to hook readers for the long-haul. A new character is introduced in this issue who stands polar opposite to the aesthetic of the series so far, potentially signaling a catastrophic and violent disruption. I like where this comic has been, but I love where it could possibly go. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez May 22, 2017

    Overall, this was a step backward in the series. Its really disheartening to see a novel concept and approach become lost somewhere in the creative process. Hopefully, the creative team will receive a wake-up call and soar to new, crazy heights with the forthcoming issues. Read Full Review
