    Comic Watch - Cody White Oct 25, 2018

    Coveris a modern masterpiece, entangling both a sharp global social commentary with an intriguing look inside the comics industry. There are moments that are simultaneously self-aggrandizing and self-depreciating, striking a beautiful balance that is punctuated by exceptional artwork. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 17, 2018

    The most intriguing book to come out of the Jinxworld imprint yet, Bendis and Mack's Cover is a twisty title that wastes no time completely upending the status quo it set up in the first issue. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Alex McDonald Oct 18, 2018

    Cover #2 is a strange one. At times stunningly beautiful. At others painfully slow. But underneath the faults is a strong thriller that hopefully will come out to shine eventually. Read Full Review

    -I'm adding two points to the score for the art. I'm never picky with my art, but I just wanted some way to show how much I love this art. It is outstanding.

    -Very funny issue. I never thought Jinxworld was funny until this issue and this weeks Pearl #3. This one didn't have me going as much as Pearl, but I still laughed a lot.

    -The Ninja Sword Odyssey is a comic I would probably pay for if it was sold in real life. The pages from it in this book are amazing.

    THE BAD:

    -There are a few nitpicky elements. Like, how the security guard fails to check the gift Max gives the President. Kind of the point of their job. Or how its promised to be a great spy story, but all they do is more
