    Comic Book Therapy - Josh "ecksmanfan" Johnson Jun 11, 2013

    This is the first in a run of three and I look forward t seeing how this one plays out. The somewhat modern setting does not hinder the darkness that fans know and love and it actually provides for the characters to delve even further into the void. The topic may be heavy, but don't let that keep you from giving this one a try. Pull up a chair, put the Cure and Depeche Mode CD's away and prepare to be engulfed in dark storytelling at it's best. Bring me more! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 13, 2013

    This is a very mature story and frankly I’m kind of surprised to see it come from IDW. In their early days I would never have second guessed it, but their brand and titles have swung in a different direction in recent years. This is definitely the best thing they’ve published all year. O’Barr’s story is handled with maturity and a master understanding of the world he’s created. It’s fantastic and it’s also set the bar very high for future issues of The Crow. Read Full Review

    Zac's super excited because he just remembered there's a CoCo-Ichibanya Curry House in L.A. that he can eat at when he flies out for SDCC. Follow him on twitter. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Not the Droid You're Looking For Jun 19, 2013

    Overall, I was impressed with this first issue. I recommend this comic to both fans of the original comic series and neophytes alike, with no real need to go back and read the earlier comics. OBarr has returned with a fresh standalone storyline that I look forward to reading further with each issue. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jorge Solis Jun 13, 2013

    A terrific read, you will not be able to put down “The Crow: Curare” #1. If you're a fan of police/crime thrillers such as “The Killing,” this title is definitely up your alley. I'm really looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Jun 12, 2013

    The Crow: Curare #1 successfully paints an awfully grim picture. Unfortunately, theres no character in the entire issue that I feel any real emotional attachment to. Rather than following the series at the hopes that Det. Salk will make the violence stop, Ill likely stop the violence myself by avoiding the next issue. Read Full Review
