    This has been a fun read; watching April come into her own to protect her brood, despite the given quirks in that type of story has been an interesting to see. AWA, with their range of distinct and diverse books are certainly making a strong start to their relatively short publishing history. Read Full Review

    Bad Mother #5 shows the wrath of a mother with one determination: to get her child back. It's intense, it's bold, and it's something you owe to yourself to check out. Read Full Review

    Overall, its a nice, short, fast crime story. A soccer mom becomes a badass to save her daughter from a sex trafficking ring. It brisk, its keeps moving, but its overall a very simple and basic story. Outside of her family and her role from Soccer Mom to killer, we don't know much about April, her daughter or anything else. Faust focuses less on themes and and more on the action. Great art by Deodato, some very good pencils to detail the violence and action in this series. Its predictable, nothing fancy, but was fun and had a fitting ending for its run.

    7/10
