    Nothing out there reads quite like Pearl, not even the other Jinxworld books or anything else Bendis is writing. Nor should it. This issue is gorgeous to look at, has plenty of exposition to jump onto and the word count is huge but doesn't weigh the book down. It's high quality on a consistent basis from two creators who have a great synergy to pour into a unique, brilliant story. Read Full Review

    The art is the best part. Gaydos is fantastic and really makes the most of what he is given by Bendis. I just wish something more interesting would happen. I also wish Bendis would tell the story in a linear fashion here as it would help. This issue felt like a collection of deleted scenes that didn't amount to much at all. Read Full Review
