BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL! A desperate mother's five-year search for her missing son leads her to the small town of Brimount and to the mysterious Phillips family. Daisy Phillips, like many teenagers, has a hard time fitting in, but not for the usual reasons. Daisy stands eight-and-a-half feet tall and is still growing, but her troubles with ill health, daily ridicule, and custom-made clothing are only the tip of the iceberg. Daisy may well be descended from a race of cannibalistic giants spawned from the outcasts of Heaven! Colin Lorimer is one of graphic fiction's emerging unique creative voices, and Daisy is a tale unlike any other, a singul more

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Dec 8, 2021

    Daisy #1 is a first issue that makes an impact unlike any other. The plot is fascinating, with Lorimers clues to where the story could be taken still perplexing the reader hours after reading. The twist is one of the most powerful this reviewer has seen, breathtaking in its strength. The art is a great style that is able to share both brutality and beauty. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Cameron Kieffer Dec 8, 2021

    Lorimers art is perfectly in sync with his writing; his realistic approach to the characters and locations never feels less than believable. This style gives the quieter moments a naturally tense feel while the heavier moments, including the grotesque Biblical flashbacks, are comparatively more intense and horrifying. Plus, Joana Lafuente's and Anita Vus colors add even more layers of beauty to the horrifying carnage. Finally, Jim Campbells lettering is perfectly suited to the storys tone. All in all, Daisy #1 is a fantastic first issue from a talented creative team. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Dec 8, 2021

    Daisy #1 sets up several mysteries that hopefully will be resolved over the next 4 issues.  A dark fantasy world is presented where we only get the barest information for each character, and the ending of the issue pays off whats introduced in the first few pages.  This is slow-burn horror and if you love that particular brand of horror, check this book out.

    Daisy #1 will definitely shock some readers and leave the rest with plenty of questions. It's just unclear yet where this plot is going as there was very little progress made here in this first issue. Read Full Review
