    Included in this issue are a series of bonus features, including some back-up comics, which are every bit as entertaining as the main story, if not more so. The first is a no-holds-barred trip into Mahfoods irreverent style, while the second is an autobiographical tale that is heartbreaking in a number of ways. And while they couldnt be more different, both tales enrich and inform the main story, peeling back the layers to reveal the deeply personal story Mahfood is trying to tell. Its an experience that ultimately sticks with you well past its blood-soaked cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    'Stone Ghost' moves on from the last miniseries into new, tonally different and aesthetic-twisting spaces, and continues to showcase Mahfood's ever-evolving style. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 7, 2021

    So, when all is said and done, Grrl Scouts: Stone Ghost #1 delivers an emotionally intense story that manages to resonate with its art while also being held back by it. If you don't mind the look Mahfood brings to this book's visuals; I think the story could be an extremely strong narrative to get invested in. Read Full Review
