    Unleash The Fanboy - Marcell Apr 2, 2013

    Bedlam #6 is another great addition to this awesome series. The characters are refreshing, the story is moody and dark and the art is phenomenal. The issue ends with a haunting reveal that will surely come back in future issues. I highly recommend this issue and this series. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Julius Freeman Apr 3, 2013

    This is some finely tuned compositional work Spencer has given us, but fans of his already know that, dont we. Hes added another layer of subplot on top of the overall plot which hopefully will all converge with one another only to explode out of the pages when the series is wrapped. Go to your local comic book store and start following this series. Go to your local comic book store and start following this series (hopefully writing that sentence twice will help remind you to support your local comic shop). Read Full Review

    Bedlam #6 is a perfectly balanced issue full of actions; suspense, mystery and intrigue that utilize more, great plot twists to keep readers coming back even after a great conclusion. Bedlam is a great and creepy horror series, and this issue emphasizes that fact. As a huge horror fan, I love this series, and you should too. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Tony Calandra Apr 3, 2013

    I still love Riley Rossmos work in Bedlam. He portrays the madness of scenes very well. Yes you can say sometimes that the panels might be a little confusing but, to me, that enhances this story. This story needs a chaotic style of artwork to it. Rossmo delivers on that, but he wont be on this title for much longer. He and Nick Spencer were at a creative crossroads so he decided to leave this book. Issue #6 is the last issue he illustrates for Bedlam. Who will be taking over you ask? Ryan Browne, who has done covers for Hoax Hunters and Hack/Slash. His style seems a little crisper than Rossmos. Im not sure how this change will affect the book; we will have to wait til issue #7 to find out. As much as I love the art work of Rossmo on this series, I know I cant wait to see where this series goes no matter who the artist is. If you enjoy psychological thrillers with some bloody twists, I suggest you pick up Bedlam next time you are at your local comic book store. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 3, 2013

    What scares me about this issue is that the story could easily end here. I hope it doesn’t because I feel as if there is so much more to be told and done with this universe (It’s solicited for issue #7 at least). Red has quickly become one of my favorite characters and I, much like the Priest, “I need more.” Hopefully, you’ve been following along with this series and we can all expect the next issue the following month. If not, then I would highly recommend that you get caught up on what’s been one of the best new series from Image Comics. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Apr 4, 2013

    As “Bedlam” ‘s first arc comes to a close, it's in a difficult place. While it started off very strongly, it has quickly petered off to being very good, but not quite excellent. This issue is a bit basic, though not bad, and as its the conclusion of the first arc, it's a bit hard to recommend the book as is to anyone who hasn't checked it out yet. A simultaneous pro and con of the arc-based standard of the industry is that the end of the story is a good time to decide “should I drop this title?” There's a big difference between a book being bad enough to drop without any thought of monetary necessity and simply not being good enough to keep paying $3.50 a month for, and while this title is no where near the former category, I can understand if some people think it falls into the latter as it enters its second arc. Personally, I'll stick around to see if Ryan Browne injects the book with new life, but perhaps not much longer than that. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Liam Jose Apr 3, 2013

    Although, having leveled all these criticisms, I've gotta say, there's something in here that is kinda goofy and fun and compelling in its own dumb way.It's fun, but it missed its bus when it was meant to meet you half-way. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Apr 5, 2013

    I'm torn on this issue, so far I've really enjoyed Bedlam, but issue 6 just didn't do it for me the way the rest have. The 'conclusion' just seemed a bit to simple, so you knew there was more, and it ended on a bit of a weird note. Read Full Review
