    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 23, 2015

    The concept of this story instantly hooked me, but the execution and maturity of the story is what made me dig in. Don't take "maturity" the wrong way because the story has plenty of funny moments, but the fact that it could hide the maturity and still have it ring true shows how talented these storytellers are. Heart in a Box is 100% a story I would recommend to new readers, especially women. It's a story and presentation that only works as a comic which only shows how amazing this medium can be. If you like complex and yet entertaining stories about relationships, then check out Heart in a Box. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 16, 2015

    "Heart in a Box" serves up a complete story of heartbreak, recovery and the effects those have on the world. Like the butterfly wings of the chaos theory, one person's acts -- random, violent, kind, insincere or hearty -- impact others and multiply in ways and directions that frequently defy description. Thompson and McClaren don't deliver the secret to life, the universe and everything in "Heart in a Box," but they do give readers a story packed with emotion, soul and jazz. The duo leaves enough possibilities to revisit Emma at some point in the future but, once the book is closed, "Heart in a Box" delivers a complete, satisfying tale. Read Full Review

    If like me you missed Heart in a Box when it was originally out, or just didn't like the idea of buying a digital comic, then now is your chance to experience this wonderful tale. Having a intriguing premise as well as a heartfelt narrative, it really captured this reader's attention, as despite its flaws it was a truly marvellous tale of love and loss. Read Full Review
