    Comic Crusaders - Bryan Spaulding Nov 29, 2017

    The new series starts in earnest with the February release of issue 1, but I highly recommend picking up the issue 0 being released this week. The character introductions we're presented with are wonderful and the foundation for the story is laid out masterfully. The issue deals with a child, someone who's path is foretold, yet all they want is to be a child. A warrior must protect them, while they encourage them to embrace the prophecy they must fulfill. This hero's journey tale, mixed with the amazing fantasy scenes drawn by Sears and Raney really pique my interest in the new series. The coming four issue series, based on this introduction will definitely be added to my pull list. Any fans of fantasy books would be encouraged to give this new series a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Dec 3, 2017

    Sears' and Raney's art is strong throughout and Sears' style in particular is more reminiscent of his Crossgen work on The Path, than it was of his work on Brute and Babe, although there are a few hints of that style as well. I didn't come away from this zero issue as excited as I hoped I would be, but I'm still a fan of these creators so I'll stick with the series for at least a little longer and see how things develop.

    Multiversity Comics - Reed Hinckley-Barnes Dec 4, 2017

    Too many clichs and not enough answers to recommend this to anyone other than die hard sword and sorcery fans. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 3, 2017

    Despite the solid artwork, I cant recommend Giantkillers #0. The plot is incredibly dense and disorganized. The characters arent interesting. Despite having a unique world, the plot isnt especially fresh either. Give this one a pass. Read Full Review
