    Bolstered by the emotional artwork of Djibril Morissette-Phan and K. Michael Russell, so much is said through posture and positioning over explicit dialogue and makes Glitterbomb: The Fame Game one of the most powerful (and perhaps vital) books on the stands. Read Full Review

    Glitterbomb The Fame game continues to be an interesting commentary on the dark side of fame. The horror elements work perfectly and Jim continues to be a fantastic writer. Djibril and K. Michael have a wonderful partnership resulting in beautiful artwork. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Nov 1, 2017

    Glitterbomb: The Fame Game ups the ante considerably with this issue. It runs the gamut of emotions, bouncing from happiness to sadness to utter despair. Along the way it takes a stop in terror and lingers there for a bit. What is impressive is how this series balances real world, everyday horror with supernatural monsters. In the end, it's tough to tell which one is more frightening. Read Full Review

    Glitterbomb: The Fame Game #2 deals with death, denial and darkness with the help of a team that seems primed to toy with all the themes therein. It's a monster yarn with the horror of the current world as its landscape making its story, and the odyssey of our babysitter, all the more compelling. In other words: this is a smartly written piece adorned with pretty pictures that demand and earn your attention. Read Full Review

    Zub, Morissette-Phan, and Russell have a real good story on their hands and I can't wait to see how it all ends.  The first issue did a real good job of setting up the story and this issue does a nice job of moving the plot along. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Oct 25, 2017

    Glitterbomb- The Fame Game #2 struggles solely because of it's protagonist. It's not that Kaydon is given poorly written dialogue or poorly drawn; it's just that Jim Zub hasn't really done anything with her yet. Read Full Review
