    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jun 1, 2021

    Bliss has consistently one of the best and most unique stories on the market. This issue is a touching and emotion filled issue which concludes this unbelievably good story in a fantastic way. There is so much to recommend in this story, and it is guaranteed to end up populating so many ‘best of’ lists as time goes on. But it’s not just a good, entertaining story. The themes explored here and the message it tells will linger on long after the reader has finished. Read Full Review

    I hate the fact Im in the final thoughts portion of the review because I have so much to talk about when it comes to Bliss. I want to talk about Sean Lewis writing, I want to talk about Caitlin Yarskys art and how she brings pain and love to the panels in a way that you ultimately know her work. I cant forget about Ari Pluchinksy coming on later in the series, however, her dynamic talent added another level to the pain and love that is Bliss, a quick example would be the cover for #8 which is beautifully haunting. Ive said it before that this creative team is one of the best in comics and we can only hope their paths cross again. From issue 1 this has been a personal journey for me. The metaphors, the characters, the pain, and the love at times I saw me and I saw him. He passed years ago and in some small way, I hope hes found closure. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jun 2, 2021

    Bliss is a wonderfully tragic allegory. It is a comic that I would gladly add the collected edition to my shelves when it releases. It is a story that uses the lens of this magical drug called Bliss and examine the harsh realities of the human conditions. The decisions we make in the dark. The decisions we make in the light. The consequences of both. Lewis and Yarsky over the past year have deftly created a touching world that ultimately tries to make our world a kinder place, and that is something truly commendable. Once again, Bliss #8 is a great end. Read Full Review

    There really is no closure, this is the song that doesn't end. A beautiful, if tragic, melody. Read Full Review

    Bliss hasn't been perfect, but like the topics it deals with, it's an emotional and cathartic journey. Read Full Review
