    Image Comics has been killing it lately with newer titles, and CRY HAVOC is definitely a series you don't want to miss out on. It hits the nail on the head with creating a dynamic story and capturing relatable themes such as depression in a unique, fantasy-driven comic book. Read Full Review

    Spurriers inclusion of writers notes in the backmatter is both interesting and educational. They contain little hints about future events, but largely provide information about turns of phrase and situational history that are relevant, but wouldnt necessarily have a place in the story. Overall, the complexly woven narrative, use of color, and inclusion of mythology continue to make Cry Havoc an interesting read. Read Full Review

    I am so glad that the stories can be kept separate through the colors used. I think its a fun storytelling strategy in a way. Spurrier and Kelly pull no punches in keeping this book brutal, but with a solid story. I would like to see some character development with the other soldiers like Louise. Just to see where they come from. Louise is definitely changing and that's good to see. Nothing seems repetitive and the story lines continue to flow. However, I feel like it may get stagnant with no real dynamic point in sight. I hope I am happily proved wrong. Read Full Review

    Cry Havoc may not always be the easiest read to follow, but it's certainly one of the prettiest. Read Full Review

    The difference is interesting and important, though. Six-Gun Gorilla was about other stories in a very general way: it was a statement about any and all stories. WhereCry Havoc does currently have some similar meta-threads developing, it is also very directly and decisively a story about specific other stories. You could argue at the very center of this story along with whatever it is that Louise is really going through is a story built on the back of genuine folkloric bits and pieces. When considered as such, Si's annotations come off less like “let me explain” and more like an acknowledgment of the fact that these are campfire stories through-and-through, and it gives Cry Havoc an equivalent sort of campfire feel.
