    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Mar 22, 2021

    'Count' is beautifully put together with heart, passion, and expertise. Moustafa honors Alexandre Dumas' classic while creating a stunning sci-fi adventure that impresses at every turn. Swashbuckling action and heartfelt beats make this a satisfying graphic novel to get lost in. The previously Eisner-nominated Moustafa should expect another nomination to come his way.

    But Why Tho? - Swara Ahmed Mar 18, 2021

    Countis overall a great and riveting story. With Moustafa's excellent worldbuilding through its main character's journey of vengeance, readers will be engrossed in an amazing sci-fi world that has so much to explore. Readers will also identify easily with Redxan and his moral dilemmas throughout the story. While Count's supporting cast of characters deserved more attention, the worldbuilding, dynamic story, and the power of Redxan's arc make an incredible read for any comic or sci-fi fan.
