    BLOODSTRIKE: BRUTALISTS is a treat for comic fans. It fuses the insanity of 90s comic book storytelling with the attitude of an underground comic/'zine. It's a singular reading experience that can only come from sequential art. Read Full Review

    One doesn't have to be familiar with the old Bloodstrike series, though it does fill in some gaps and answer some lingering questions. Instead, Bloodstrike Brutalists serves as a great intro to some timeless superhero concepts and archetypes that any Marvel or DC purist would love to read. Read Full Review

    Final Verdict: 7.5 " "Bloodstrike" #0 is an idiosyncratic comic, it may not be for everyone, or even what they expected, but the technical aspects of how Fiffe put this book together makes it worth considering. Read Full Review

    Maybe, if you're more knowledgeable about the Image Comics creations of Rob Liefeld and Extreme Studios in general, Michel Fiffe'sBloodstrike #0 will tickle your nostalgia fancy and filter the excess of the 1990s in a stylish new way. This is definitely not new reader friendly, but it's worth flipping through to check out Fiffe's unique art and metamorphic color palette. From the backmatter and care that Fiffe takes at replicating the original costumes,Bloodstrike#0 seems like a passion project, but unfortunately that passion is hard to transfer through this story.

    Also, this may be pointing out the obvious, but Deadlock's mask is just Wolverine's. And Project: Born Again? Why not just call it “Not Project: Rebirth but Totally Project: Rebirth.” Read Full Review

    First a note, I don't like Rob Liefeld's comic work. I hear he's generally a great guy, he's contribution to the indie comic revolution can't be understated, and I hear regardless of everything else, he's a workhorse. But I am not a fan.

    I bought this issue, and plan to buy the next two, based on Michel Fiffe's name alone. Much like how I got into Brandon Graham's Prophet, Erik Larsen's Supreme, and Joe Keatinge's Glory several years ago. Fiffe's Copra is amazing, being both a love letter to 80s DC & Marvel and very much its own take on the modern team super book. Fiffe's art is always a treat with its expressive lines, and marker style coloring. And his layouts and lettering are easily some of the best in the business. The guy i more
