    A member of a crime family encounters trouble on a big score and it's a riveting read. The story did take more than one read to get a handle on it, but I enjoyed it and want to see how it all plays out. The visuals are eye-popping thrillers, where colors are as key as the action on the page. The letters are stylish accompaniments to the visuals. If you don't enjoy this, you deserve to have two fingers pointed at you. This is the first issue, so jump on now! Recommended. Read Full Review

    Overall, Trust Fall #1 is a nice origin story to this character and the world she commands. The story by Sebela is relatable, funny, and action-packed. The art by the creative team is unique and stellar. Altogether, you'll love this story if you like crime noir books and love it even more if you always root for the underdog. Read Full Review

    Family conflicts over loyalty and trust are a perpetual literary concern because they are a perpetual human concern. Most people at some point have a reckoning with the worldview their parents stuck them with, or with their family's disregard or obliviousness to their well-being. This familiar emotional wound powers Trust Fall, and along with clever words and gorgeous images, makes this book a solid success. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 12, 2019

    Trust Fall has an interesting idea about it but it's overloaded at the front and done in a somewhat confusing way that on first read made it harder to get into than I expected. I really like the concept and the use of various levels of crime families offers some neat ways to move things along and expand the world. Sebela has a lot going on in this opener but we don't really get to know Ash as well as I think we needed to in order to make her the person we understand this world through. Visions' artwork grew on me the more I read it but there's a flow to it combined with how Sebela is telling the story that makes the opening half harder to connect with than it should be.
