    This is the kind of comic that Image was built on in the late 90's. How in the hell this team was not scooped up before they reached Kickstarter is a mystery? This is action, its adventure, its bloody, its brutal, it's a feast for the eyes and the imagination and I for one cannot wait to see what these talented individuals have in store for us next. This is my pick for Indy book of the summer and you need to get your copy of issue one before it disappears. Mark my words" this series and its creators are headed for BIG things in the future.

    Wailing Blade is a cross of a lot of fresh ideas, excellent designs, and some charming writing. This book quickly shows that the people working on it love the world theyre setting up and that passion is pretty infectious. Pick it up, its worth a look. Read Full Review

    There's a lot to absorb in a first issue" or perhaps I should say, there's a lot to convey. Rich and Joe have done a great job setting things in motion here. Opening with a map of the lands of the Wailing Blade world instantly grabbed me (reminding me of reading Tolkien) and set my mood" following it with the harsh world the people live in and the order of things drew me in and made me want to know more. It's a heavy metal ride through a brutal landscape" crank your stereo and strap in for a future fantasy ride with Wailing Blade. Read Full Review

    "Wailing Blade" #1 is a fun story with too much visual detail on the page to initially pull off the tension it seeks. Read Full Review
