    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Oct 21, 2015

    Oxymoron: The Loveliest Nightmare is an expertly written and beautifully drawn book that will scare you to your core. You can see a major influence from Se7en in the book, but taken to super villain proportions. Co-writer John Lees promises that the second half of the series is where "things get REALLY messed up!" I cannot imagine how he's going to top the events of this issue, but I am definitely looking forward to it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Oct 10, 2015

    A cross between the mannerisms and actions of the Joker and Red Hood (Jason Todd version), Oxymoron is a “very bad man” as he continues to terrorizethe citizens of Swanstown. The lead officer on the case is given a way out, a chance to leave it all behind, but she has something to prove, and a past that needs rectifying. James and Lees deliver a cold-blooded tale with issue #2, and push the doors wide open for more mayhem. Cormack delivers another issue filled to the brim with the gritty details of Oxymoron's plans as he lights the panels to accentuate the villain's destruction. All this chaos has to make you wonder thoughwhat's keeping people in this city? Free Wifi? Read Full Review
