    Pearl #7 illustrates the limits of comic book storytelling through the crime narrative. Extremely down-to-earth while including an incredible amount of detail, its an eye-opening looks at Pearl and her relationships. Despite the fact that Pearl is about to face a much larger world while on the run, we the readers know her better than ever. Its an amazing book that turns flaws, imperfections and alterations into art and beauty. Read Full Review

    Michael Gaydos' art is brilliant. Every panel is a beautiful work of art in itself. The backgrounds are amazing and the characters feel real because of complex and beautiful facial expressions and details. Read Full Review

    Pearl is a crime noire story built on the bonds between two close friends and the criminal element that entangles them. Sandwiched in is a possible love story, or tragedy, as Mr. Mike's Yakuza clan circles its prey. I highly recommend this story to fans of Bendis and stories about unique characters with complex backstories. Read Full Review

    The art is something special though. Gaydos makes every panel a work of art. His work here is the selling point of the series. Seriously, he only gets better and better. Hopefully, the story gives him more to do. But even if it doesn't, his Illustrated work is something to behold. Read Full Review
