Valerie's getting dirty phone calls, but when she goes to take revenge she meets Myles, the man of her dreams. But Myles is up against Emil and Gustav, mentally unstable guns for hire. And Valerie's sister Penny's friend Marcy just wants to play her own songs, but no one in the bar tonight cares- least of all Penny's loser boyfriend Marv and his buddies Chip and Jev, who want their homeboy Mike to play the race card in a dubious scheme to get rich. But Mike has just fallen foul of a certain organisation with a lot of Ks in its name. And then there's Mister Fluffy.

    Bounding Into Comics - Jonathan Ngo Oct 6, 2015

    This is definitely a book you should try if you like mature humour, a dash of violence and aren't bothered by harsh language. However, this could be said about most of Ennis' works. I'm looking forward to reading the next issue as soon as possible. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Oct 7, 2015

    Overall the book is a fun read. With the cast of characters, there should be at least one character that grabs your attention. With Ennis, you would think you would know what you are getting. But the book, with its ubiquitous Ennis flourishes, does feel like a fresh book. It will be interesting to see how long time Ennis fans will take to this book. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Jim Taylor Oct 8, 2015

    An entertaining romp featuring Ennis' famously dark sense of fun. There are hints of something truly fresh here, but the coming issues will reveal if that bears out or not. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nina Bird Oct 7, 2015

    This comic is absurd and funny and weird. I didn't know what I was getting into, but I'm definitely glad I have this one a chance. The story jumps around, following these different characters with extremely different plotlines, and it works. Between all the "seriously? Seriously???" moments, it's hard to pinpoint what, exactly, I enjoyed about this comic. All I can say is that it's unique, and it's interesting, and it's got me sticking around for #2.

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Oct 6, 2015

    Those aside, this is a pretty engaging first issue " if you're a fan of Ennis' wit and wisdom, pulp fiction, or just something a little different, you'll find quite a lot to like here. It's not precisely clear as yet where Ennis is going with this, but it does look set to be a fun ride whilst it lasts. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Brett I Oct 6, 2015

    While this single issue didnt jump out at me, I can see the potential for a solid long form story, and the base for some really good artwork. On this one, I would say wait for a trade, as I cant help but trust Ennis in the long term. Read Full Review
