    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 13, 2019

    The issue wraps-up with Rougvie speaking directly to the reader in a long bit of text that provides some background on the thought thats gone into the series. Rougvies work with the creative team on coming up with a way to dynamically show the power of music on a comics page makes for reading thats every bit as interesting as whats going on in the actual narrative. That final bit of text at the end of the issue, the Spotify playlist that goes along with the issue and so much more continue to make Gunning for Hits a refreshingly deep multi-track series.

    The comic is as irreverent as it is coy about its hitman origins, leaving fans eager to learn where this series' intersection between music and murder meets. Read Full Review
