To get through the hell that lies between her Alabama home and Atlanta, she makes a deal with one of the Donovan slaves, Hattie Virgil, who has an agenda of her own.

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Dec 3, 2019

    This is a comic that lets it be known very soon that the people behind it know what they’re doing. The story isn’t just interesting it is executed in a way that its natural flow makes every scene gripping. The art is expressive, original, and adds complexity to an already complex story. The issue ends with proof that the journey has just begun, or perhaps, it may be over before it starts. Read Full Review

    Sydney Duncan has plotted a thoroughly pulpy western with this new series, featuring all the hallmarks of a gritty southern-set shoot em up though some might be a hair cliched. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Dec 4, 2019

    On the whole, this is a real missed opportunity. There is a wealth of Western revenge stories that Duncan and Barahona could have drawn from, and an incredible number of strong, vengeful heroines that they could have looked at for inspiration. What we ultimately get, however, is a disappointing and easily forgettable effort that definitely wont be making it onto my pull list. Read Full Review
