    Outright Geekery - Amani Cooper Jun 24, 2016

    Cry Havoc has become such a great and drama filled story. I didn't expect it to be so touching. You might not see it that way, but there is some depth to it. Underneath all the bloodshed and naked bodies, there is real emotion. Don't laugh because I am serious. Who doesn't love gory stories with heart? Cry Havoc is a wonderful story that has been cool to follow. From Simon Spurrier's timeline hopping to Ryan Kelly's gritty art, this wild ride is one that I can go back to and enjoy over and over. You may be able to say that about a lot of books, but this one deserves a special place on your bookshelf. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Austin Lanari Jun 24, 2016

    Through all of this philosophizing and self-reflection and advice-columning and Spurrier's own incitement of this both in his challenge to the press and in his appendices throughout these issues, Cry Havoccan feel a little academic (goodness knows the length of this review alone would make it admissable in to several reputable academic journals). But I think that's probably off-base: Cry Havocis a work that makes you ask what you want from the stories in your life. It is a story that prepares you and then places you in a situation to face how you and the people around you treat the untouchable or unverifiable features of the world. Either you take up the challenge in earnest, or wake up one morning to find out you're an insufferable shit who knows a dozen movie casting factoids but can't remember the last time he got lost between the panels of a comic book.

    An excellent ending to an excellent six issue run. The story is entertaining but is also a packed meta-fiction with a lot to say about modern myth telling. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Mark Allen Jun 22, 2016

    As if that weren't enough, the backmatter is filled with early sketches and Spurrier's mandatory notes and research on the creatures featured within Cry Havoc's pages. If you're into mythology, this book will be like catnip for you. As the last pages make clear, the rest of Lou Canton's story looks to be as unpredictable as the start. Or end. Middle? Who cares; it's fun just to be in such a messy, weird and exciting world. Read Full Review

    f you were looking for answers pertaining to Cry Havoc's many threads, consider the floodgates opened. Issue #6 is a deluge of wrap-up and advancement, Simon Spurrier providing seeming ends to darn near every plot point in motion. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jun 22, 2016

    Cry Havoc #6 is a huge disappointment and plummet in quality. The story and character developments are extremely rushed here, speeding through potential ideas and character growth. The writing suffers due to the speed at which things are resolved, leaving the experience feeling awkward and in need of a few more draft phases. The only thing that doesn't suffer is the artwork, which while good, is not enough to save the title. This series started off so promising, but it just fell off as time went on. It could still redeem itself if the series does return, but until that point, I just cannot recommend the comic. Read Full Review
