Well, she went and did it. Pearl started the biggest Yakuza clash since the Yama-Ichi Feud. Why? Because enough is enough. Just because she was born into a world that runs a certain way doesn't mean that she has to follow their rules when all she wants to do is master the art of tattoo. A scintillating new series and character from the Peabody Award-winning creators of Jessica Jones.

    Beautiful written and visual storytelling that is being told at a pace that is slightly too slow. Read Full Review

    Brian Michael Bendis keeps the story interesting while taking a breather from the gang war in PEARL #3. Michael Gaydos keeps his art consistent; however, in this issue, the visuals don't seem to stand out very much. Overall, PEARL #4 is a good, consistent comic. Read Full Review

    The writing and storyline are great, especially for a tying everything together book. I really just want to take a moment to talk about Gaydos. Most of the script is taken place in a dark garden. He adds touches of color when he can while keeping the reader in the ambiance of night, which is really hard to do. Kudos to Mr. Gaydos. Read Full Review

    I was one of the few who wasn't all onboard this comic each issue. I loved the concept, setting, characters, and themes. It felt that Bendis and Gaydos were lost in narrowing down what they wanted it all to be. But we finally get an issue that ties that's keeping the good, while slowly eliminating the bad at the same time. This hopefully isn't a one-off but the continuation of a great story that took a little development to get there. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Nov 21, 2018

    This is a crime noir with a slow reveal that involves warring crime families and a girl's mysterious tattoo. The art provides beautiful renderings of shadowy facial features, and characters' trepidatious responses to the dilemmas they have created. If you love crime-noir and you enjoy good art, please pick up this book. Read Full Review

    The art by Gaydos is perfect. He's got this character down and the culture of the San Francisco scene. He and Bendis are making a classic book. It's also a book that's unlike anything that either have ever worked on before. Read Full Review
