    Comic Bastards - Matt Eurice Mar 20, 2013

    I would say that any reader who has had to deal with addiction in their life or knows someone who has dealt with addiction in their life should pick this title up. It is a very serious story, but a very good one, with very good art. It’s certainly very different and something that I would buy, especially to support this one-shot in becoming a possible ongoing or miniseries. There could be some potential problems if it does become an ongoing, but it could be done and for now, this one-shot hits the nail right on the head. If you are at all interested in the concept, give it a chance because the execution is damn near flawless and I don’t like tossing that term around. This is a comic that goes beyond the medium and is more than just a story for a book. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Mar 21, 2013

    Oemings one shot is a mixed bag. It begins with a fizzle and slowly mounts to something more interesting. The art in both stories is the draw here. Given a better focus, Wild Rover could be something, but as it stands its nothing to write home about. Read Full Review

    $3, 24pgs. + back cover pin up; 4 ADs @ back____Tricky to rate, being 2 separate shorts and such. Frankly, Avon's work doesn't often work for me. There were a few moments that i admire. The layout or something. The story itself is nauseating, and its principle character pathetic. It would fit better in Creepy, as a stomach turner... and i mean that in high regards. A reader who likes to gaze a little too close at the inner muck of lowlife, may find this appalling.
    The second story is a charmer with art i can enjoy and a great twist ending, Well dona and raises the bar for this book.
