    James Robinson and Tom Feister's Grand Passion #1 is an effective opening that sets the stage for the outsized emotions and gripping crime thrills we're going to hopefully get from the series. If you're a fan of movies like "True Romance" or "The Getaway," you'll have no trouble embracing the heightened passions and hard-boiled action of this issue. Read Full Review

    Great Passion is a series that brings together some good stuff and with it being promoted as a mix of a hard-boiled work with a Harlequin style romance in all the most chaotic of ways, well, I'm hopeful that it'll pan out because something wild and crazy would be great. The key ingredients are here with the characters and motivations as well as how it's presented, and we've got the right cooks in the kitchen with Robinson and Feister. I can see what it can be here but it's not a knockout first issue that would really cement it as a must-read book just yet. It has me very hopeful, however, because it's got everything it needs to achieve it. Robinson has certainly built the cred to pull it off and Feister certainly has the design of the book down wonderfully and that'll make it a worthy trip to take. Read Full Review

    This is the start to what I expect will be a series no less than enthralling. The creative team on this story has done a great job thus far, and I can't wait to see what they've got in store for us. As of now, yeah, Mabel wants to kill Mac, but I'm really rooting for their nonexistent relationship. We'll just have to keep reading to see what happens! Read Full Review

    This is by no means a bad issue, but it was missing the special something I needed to grab me. Sure the WTF ending will bring me back for another issue, but I will fully admit that it's out of morbid curiosity and nothing more. For me, morbid curiosity dries up the quickest, so I hope that the next issue has something to hook me. Outside of the ending, this issue played it too safe and ultimately a little boring.
