Just as Dana learns a secret about Aban that upends the murder investigation, the tensions

perfect opportunity to strike.

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Mar 21, 2015

    Lastly, the lettering in this comic impressed me with the elegant technique Jim Campbell employs to let readers know when people are not talking in English. Perhaps it's been done before, but the way Campbell does the scripting of the Arabic makes me wish I was able to see the full dialogue in that language, further serving as a reminder of the dissonance between the private military officers and the people who's town they're occupying. There's so much more to go off on about this issue (OMG! the cover) so I hope my score sufficiently captures just how much I dig it. Read this comic, and then sit by your calendar and wait for issue four with me. Read Full Review

    Three issues in, Burning Fieldscontinues to draw the reader deeper and deeper into a murky, oil-soaked world of immoral PMCs, shadowy politics and a faintly supernatural horrorlurking just on the periphery. Moreci and Daniel are taking their time drawing back the curtain completely, but the brief glimpses they've given us so farinto the horrors lurking in the oilfields of Iraq are morethan enough to make this series absolutely essential reading.

    Pick up Burning Fields and get sucked into the mystery that is as enveloping as anything on cable or Netflix. It's all the more rewarding when you hold the gorgeous pages of art in your hands and read and re-read the year's most compelling miniseries so far. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Mar 18, 2015

    This series had taken a new look at the War in Iraq and through its new perspective revisited some of the underlying problems involved with the conflict, some of which are wounds which are not yet closed in the national psyche. This series deserves credit for not tiptoeing around the facts and instead dives straight into them, providing a sense of reality even when the world around them is populated with something more fantastical. This is a well written series, and is more difficult to read than most series, but only because the setting and concept are so divisive in terms of ethics and power. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Mar 18, 2015

    Ive been praising Burning Fields all along and I think #3 is the strongest issue yet. There are a lot of serial killer books ongoing right now, but please dont overlook this one. It offers something really unique that I think people should see. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Liam Hainey Mar 19, 2015

    A promising blend of style, some good concepts and grisly art are let down by some thin character development. Less than the sum of it's parts. Read Full Review
