    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Nov 20, 2017

    This book is an interesting diversion from some of the more continuity fuelled books with a defined style that will no doubt split opinion. First impressions aside, the book does deliver the required horror that fans of Mike Mignola et al usually deliver. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Mickey Rivera Nov 14, 2017

    Besides the amazing artwork, this is a classic Mignola horror story that would feel right at home in Hellboy. Every single speaking character in this book is a personality worth paying attention to, from the crazed religious fanatic who tries to hunt Jenny down to the fishes that periodically pop into the panels to whisper "doom." Whether you've already experienced the inky-black horror ofJenny Finn or not, this version of Mignola and Nixey's tale is one you shouldn't miss. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 14, 2017

    Jenny Finn #1 is a mysterious yet appealing dive into this pseudo-Victorian London setting. The world, the characters, the details they all coincide to create this air of uncertainty and danger. It is a greatly enjoyable read, and I recommend it. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Nov 19, 2017

    Ultimately, Jenny Finn is an uncomfortable, unsettling read that offers up way more questions than answers – for the time being, at least – but given Mignolas unquestioned pedigree and the fresh, disturbing feel of Troy Nixeys full-colour art, this new series still comes highly recommended.

    Entertainment Fuse - zach.blackmer Nov 19, 2017

    The problem with this story isn't that its absurdly bad, but that I expected more out of this writer. Mignola is one of the most original and engaging writers of modern comics, yet this is a boring uninventive story. All I can really say is that this comic is just disposable entertainment in all the worst ways. Read Full Review
