    Grindhouse issue four ends the second story arc of this limited run anthology series. Like the previous three issues, it's a fun love letter/deconstruction of the various Grindhouse genres and I hope that this series gets picked up for another run after this initial one ends. The only part that I found disappointing with this issue is that there weren't the cool fake movie posters at the end. Those were great and I think that Dark Horse should release them as a poster series. Anyway, lack of posters aside, this is a great, fun comic that fans of Grindhouse cinema should definitely read. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    This is the type of book your parents would have had to buy in some scum ridden porno dungeon, but Dark Horse is brave enough to have it on the stands every week. This is a damn good thing, so we best all embrace it. God knows I have. Read Full Review

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and although I'm not exactly proud of myself for doing so, I fully recommend it to all (over the age of 18) readers, and will be eagerly awaiting the next instalment of DarkHorse's Grindhouse series. Read Full Review

    "Prison Ship Antares" ain't high art but it sure works great as low art. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Jan 1, 2014

    While waiting for the awesome sounding next issue, "Bride of Blood", check out the awesome little visual jokes Simon Fraser included in the issue. For example, when the inmates riot in the greenhouse, a banana and two apples appear on the floor in quite a phallic depiction. Also, the fight scene where the guard gets his face smashed into an inmate's boobs provided to be one of the best uses of motor-boating in comics. Try finding any other comic review that points something like that out! Read Full Review
