    The plot is gripping and exciting"involving a dead councilman, a Voodoo queen, and zombies. There are lots of twists and turns that keep the story interesting, and Williams leaves readers with a cliffhanger ending that will leave them begging for more. Trevor Hairsine's artwork brings this southern fried story to life in fantastic fashion, giving it a look much more like something you would find in a Vertigo comic than a DCU title.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Oct 30, 2012

    A complete tale that works perfectly well on its own terms, and like Lemire's Eternity, entices you enough that you actually want to see how it'll all work out. But such hopes seem fruitless when there's such clear contradiction between what's written and what's already established. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 25, 2012

    The "National Comics" line hasn't been perfect, but "National Comics: Madame X" is a good one-shot that I think would easily translate into an ongoing series. Will any of the "National Comics" titles make the jump? Will we see more before long? To both, I can only say, let's hope so. If they're as good as "National Comics: Madame X" then I think we'll have good times ahead of us. Read Full Review

    We don't know if any of these National Comics one-shots will spawn series, but this is one character than seems fleshed out enough to justify it. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Oct 26, 2012

    "National Comics: Madame X" is not the comic of the year, but it's the perfect example of a comic worth picking up if you have a few bucks more than you thought to spend for a few reasons: first, and most importantly, it's a well put-together read; second, you can approach it without any knowledge of the character or the DCnU in general (thanks, reboot!); finally, as a one-and-done, this is one of the few $3.99 comics on the shelves that is worth the price of admission. It doesn't read through in half a minute, and it doesn't make you feel obligated to pick it up next month to find out if you like it or not. Read Full Review

    It's worth a read. It's not my favorite and I'm not sure I'd read the entire series if it goes that far, but it's certainly above average. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 31, 2012

    The comic's not bad, but certainly nothing special. And with a $4 price tag, it probably will appeal to only longtime fans of the character. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
