    And if you're looking for a comic about strong female characters (who do their fighting in skimpy armor) look no further. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 19, 2013

    I’ve been looking forward to this series since the covers were revealed and I’m glad that it didn’t disappoint. I’m very curious to see how Ara’s Jirni plays out and the scope of the overall plot. Depending on the villains’ endgame this series could go on for quite a while as Ara explores the world and as long as it’s interesting I wouldn’t mind that at all… just don’t change the art.

    Aspen can add another new character to their line up. J.T. Krul introduces us to a new character and whole new world full of action, magic and mystery and suspense. With a debut issue for a dollar, Aspen does a good job arousing your curiosity. With big fantasy action and great visuals, this comic gives us something different compared to the plethora of superhero books on the stands. JIRNI is something you should definitely check out.

    Following The Nerd - Dave Christian Apr 26, 2013

    The artwork by Paolo Pantalena is gorgeous! It is truly a wonderful fantasy-styled book, perfect for the story and characters. JT Krul does an amazing job of introducing the characters to us, making us long for Ara to find her answers, and causing us to hurt when young Nylese losses her father. The book is deeply entertaining and well crafted. With is also having a cover price of $1 as part of Aspen's special "10 For 10" celebration, you cannot go wrong with giving it a try. If you're a fan of fantasy books and tales of mystical worlds, then Jirni is for you! Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Leslie Rising May 10, 2013

    All-in-all, if you can get past the hypersexualization of our heroine, youll find that Aspen Comics has woven together a comic with the potential to be pretty good. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 19, 2013

    "Jirni" #1 pulls no punches in establishing a confident and (overly) sexy heroine with a will that is unchecked and a quest that can be supported. This is familiar territory for readers of fiction, fantasy, science fiction and comics, but Krul brings newness to the story beyond the featured purple-skinned warrior woman on the cover. Ara's powers are impressive and effective and her conscience quickly assumes responsibility for Nylese, who is set upon a quest of her own. Of the three titles I've sampled in Aspen's "10 for 10," I think "Jirni" has the most complete world to offer. This is a title I'll more likely be checking in with than the others, I just wish it weren't so (butt)cheeky. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lilith Wood Jun 5, 2014

    Buy Jirni #1 for Paolo Pantalena's pin-up art or for cosplay ideas, but not for an exciting story. Read Full Review

    . . $1,20pgs+2pg backup. Stylish Cover! some interrupting ADs. . . . A nice opener with plenty of eye candy. A decent story that sets up the characters and world a little bit, with a fair amount of killer action. The art from Pantalena and Smith is the real gem,a nd the colors in particular are LUSH and amazing. Another strong new title for Apen, for their 10th Anniversary. I only wish their books were $3!
