    JOE GOLEM continues to be everything you could possibly want it to be. Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden are a heck of a team, and Patric Reynolds continues to compliment them perfectly by bringing unique worlds to life stunningly with his art. All in all, this series is an absolutely essential purchase. Read Full Review

    Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden have made successful careers out of find the humanity in monsters; Joe Golem, for all intents and purposes, might be the zenith of these two creators at their best. Patric Reynolds art is paced beautifully not one line is wasted. This is one of the best reads I have had in a while and a delightful way to kick off 2016. Read Full Review

    This issue gave me a strong sense of what this series can be and the sort of stories it can tell. Obviously that's very important in a debut arc. I hope the next arc puts more emphasis on the present. The flashbacks, while visually interesting, have limited pay-off and tend to be a bit one note. When Joe Golem is at its best is when the story dives into tragic, haunted stuff. That's where it really shines. The imagery used to to explore a certain character's interior life was perfect and I have to praise all involved for pulling it off so well. That sequence was masterful. Read Full Review

    While Joe Golem remains in traction for the moment thanks to its myriad of unexplained threads, it remains a slight but capable entry into Mignola library. And, because it does not connect to the Hellboy universe, it gives new readers an opportunity to give this style of pulpy fantasy story a try, reason enough for me to recommend it. Here's hoping we get some closure on something, anything, in issue four. Read Full Review
