    Geeked Out Nation - Logan Dalton Jan 20, 2015

    As Goners begins to reach the end of its first arc, the threat level of the comics reaches fever pitch as Semahn and Corona unravel the secrets around the Latimer family and their relationship to things that go bump in the night. But characterization doesn't take a hit underneath the gore, shotgun shells, and resuscitations. One of the best part of Goners is that Josiah and Zoe talk like a kid and teenager respectively. Semahn and Corona's genuine care in constructing these characters (along with the spooky monsters and atmosphere) is what makes it one of the best horror comics along the stands. The plot twists and watercolor dream sequence are nice touches which make Goners #4 the best issue of the series so far. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nina Bird Jan 21, 2015

    I'm so ready for the next issue; Mama Latimer is a tentacle creature and I absolutely need to know what happens next. #4 had me a little bored honestly; we're moving quickly and yet there isn't enough to hold my interest. But they've hooked me in again with this Mama Latimer business. That's their trick: keeping us interested with these shock endings. I need a touch more plot to stay committed, but I'm so sold on these supernatural creatures and the action and all the dark, twisted bits holding this story together. It's an action-heavy story, and the characters are rather weak, so if you're looking for a character-driven narrative" well, if you haven't dropped out yet, it's probably about time. If you're still here, you know what you're getting into: it's all blood and guts and ominous creatures in the shadows. Read Full Review
