    New readers will likely be lost within this story. Little is done to introduce characters in a way to catch up those just jumping on. New readers will likely need to pick up the first trade as a means of figuring out this story, as great as it is. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Jun 9, 2013

    Nick Spencer and Ryan Browne have teamed up to give Bedlam the kick in the pants that the series needed. Issue #7 feels fresh and full of possibility, which is a great shift from the conclusion of the previous arc, which felt a little stretched out. Hopefully they'll be able to maintain this pace going forward. Read Full Review

    Bedlam to me is a “what if” style of story. What if the Joker was rehabilitated and became the next Sherlock Holmes and at any moment could become Moriarty instead. That’s what this story is and it’s fantastic because of it. If you’re not reading it then you definitely need to start with this issue at least and then back track through the previous story arc as well. Spencer and company make a triumphant return and have grabbed my attention once more with this series putting it near the top of my list. Read Full Review

    Technically, this comes with a recommend. If you haven't read Bedlam and something above has interested you, do yourself a favor and go back to the beginning and catch up. There's only seven issues so far and it's all worth the read. It's a really strong series that has a ton of potential (or "legs" as we say in the business). Read Full Review

    My favorite thing about this book is that most of the people in it were dead before the last page. Is that wrong? Mmm, wrong feels good. This is a gem, my lovely readers. If youre on my level with this shit, meaning if you share my love of bloodshed, Bedlam and witticism (seriously, does anyone not like that?), youre gonna dig the fuck out of this book. Make yourself some tea (whiskey), put your feet up (take your pants off) and watch some smart-ass slaughter the sheep. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson Jun 13, 2013

    There are a few elements at play against this issue from the unfortunately lightweight story to the series style taking away somewhat from Ryan Browne's art that maybe make this issue a little less enjoyable as it should be. Hopefully, this is just teething pains as the book switches artist and story arcs because this book is a lot better than this issue makes it out to be. Here's hoping when the next story arcs kicks in that it returns to the strength that this book should be at. Read Full Review

    Bedlam #7 isn't the devil. It hasn't changed. This is still a great horror story with awesome emotional attachment and gory weirdness wrapped in the same package. If you were a fan of Bedlam before you'll still be a fan of Bedlam now. The story is even more exciting and intriguing than before, and is everything that a fan of horror would want.
