    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Nov 1, 2009

    Nala's determination is not only apparent in her eyes, through the artwork, but also obvious in the actions she takes and decisions she makes. In the opening scene, she pursues Vincene, determined to keep a thief from taking what's hers. Nala quickly ends up playing the role of the victim, only to get the best of Vincene in the end, torturing her with a mystery that will haunt her. Nala's also empowered by her sexuality and uses it as a tool. It makes for a tragic tone to the figure. She's been used and has used others, but there's still this sense that she cares. It may just be another mask, but the reader is left with the impression that mask is actually a reflection of a person she once was. Read Full Review

    Long story short: I dug it enough to give it a solid B rating. If you dig stories about people double-crossing each other for money and the double-crossers getting double-crossed by other folks who will inevitably be double-crossed in the end, youll probably dig this book too. You like gunfire, crime, exploitation flicks and enormous breasts? This book has all that too. Check it out. Read Full Review
