    I rarely come across a work so thought provoking, heartbreaking and unique. Poignant without being ponderous or heavy, drawn and colored like a dream, Laila Starr is a meditation on life, death, humanity and loss and how these things interact with and influence one another that sticks with you long after you turn the final page.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 16, 2021

    Laila Starr is the main character here, but its really he who will invent immortality, who is the center of the story. Theres a nice sense of duality between story and art and death and the man who will make it obsolete. Laila has lost much of the direction she seemed to have in the first couple of issues. Itll be interesting to see what kind of momentum V and Andrade can summon for her in the last couple of installments of the series. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Jason Flatt Jun 17, 2021

    The Many Deaths of Laila Starr#3 exceeded my expectation for the next issue after what I called the best issue I had ever read. It was just as emotional, creative, and beautiful, even as it took on one of the most difficult topics under the sun. Without repeating itself or missing a beat, this issue continues to prove that the series is, in fact, perfect and that its first two issues were not merely exceptional. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jun 18, 2021

    Life, death, regrets, and more are the topics covered within this fantastically colorful and inventively gorgeous and deep cautionary tale of an issue from what is one of the best comic books on the stands. This creative team takes the amazing work that has already been done in previous issues and elevates it to almost unbelievable levels. The story of Death/Laila Starr and Darius Shah is truly just the story of humanity itself, which makes it all that much better. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 16, 2021

    Minimalist drawings are highlighted by a color palate of pastels heavily featuring purples and blues. The combination creates a surreal, dizzying effect that matches the mood of the story. This issue is completely engaging and transportive. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Jun 15, 2021

    Another great issue, as above my only issue is the preoccupation to still make smoking look somehow cool. It 2021 and I'm bored seeing movies, music and comics telling how cool I could look if I smoked. If I park my objections to smoking, this sad tale adds nicely to the gentle tapestry that Ram and Filipe are weaving. It's the kind of issue you read three times to ensure you don't miss anything. Oh and stop smoking, those things will kill you. Read Full Review
