    ‘Eight Billion Genies' dances that fine line between whimsical fantasy and the true horrors that stem from the human condition, showcasing how even the simplest of things can and likely will be corrupted instantly once given to humanity at large. Centering this story on a small group of people mostly unaffected by the wishes helps ground the story amidst all the chaos that can be found throughout the rest of the pages. Read Full Review

    The progression of events is exponentially crazy, and it makes me worry about how mad issue eight is going to be, but it's a well-written, complex and engaging story with a lot of moving parts that still works. That's an achievement. Read Full Review
