Cursed at birth, Charlene "Chuck" Manchester hires out her own bad luck, providing disaster where someone else can profit.

A warehouse job goes wrong-meaning Chuck destroys the place according to plan, but the authorities finally catch up to her-not to mention the curse she's run from her whole life. A vengeful cult leader, a mob matriarch, and an insurance investigator on a quest finally have her where they want her. But Chuck won't let bad luck stop her, even if she has to seek out allies she turned her back on a long time ago.

    But Why Tho? - Nikko Soto May 30, 2019

    I can say with full confidence that I had a blast reading this comic. On top of the unique portrayal of causing bad luck as a power, the overall story is just fantastic. The creative team has done a phenomenal job in creating an intriguing series. There's no doubt that the story is about to pick up very quickly. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Kai Kiriyama May 30, 2019

    Tl;dr - grab this book. It's only 4 issues in the run. For a debut mini series, it is absolutely everything that I wanted out of a comic book. Fun isn't the word I'd use to describe it because of subject matter, but it isn't grimdark. Just go get this book, and thank me later. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 29, 2019

    I continue to enjoy Bad Luck Chuck a good bit with all of its quirks and oddities. I'm still not on board for the big story as we get some new pieces added at the end and Fayola's mother seems to have been sidelined for the moment so I'm feeling like I'm on less certain ground with that area right now. But when it focuses on Chuck, the temple, and time with Fayola, it all comes together beautifully. And a good chunk of that is Matthew Dow Smith's visual design for the series with the characters really feeling very distinctive and appealing to watch move across the page. I'm looking forward to a good bit more of this. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone May 30, 2019

    A great premise if somewhat iffy execution, Bad Luck Chuck #3 gives the reader a taste of what's to come. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh May 29, 2019

    We're certainly being kept on our toes, but the book is also exploring so many different directions that it feels as though the narrative will come to a close before getting invested enough in any of these storylines to make for a fulfilling conclusion. Read Full Review
