    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Apr 9, 2019

    Gunning For Hits continues to be an intriguing take on the corruption of rock 'n' roll by the corporate parasites, but the rock stars are not much better, as it turns out. Wasn't there a t-shirt somewhere that said "kill your idols"? It looks like that may be how this all ends up. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 10, 2019

    Once again, one of the more unique offerings on the modern comic book rack continues to make a one-of-a-kind impression in an issue that shuffles around the central focus of the ongoing story. Its difficult to measure the pacing of the series as Slade and Billy seem to be burning through the narrative relatively early. Billys band is already emerging to impending success, which suggests that Rougvies plans for the series will likely expand to cover the life of Mills in decades to come beyond the current era of the late 1980s.

    Comic Watch - Adrian Care Apr 10, 2019

    Rougvie continues to parley his industry experience into platinum level hits. The fully realized characters. The Mad Men-like interactions and A, B, and C plots, and the air of danger and excess that this book breathes make it a must for heavy rotation. This is definitely a book for everyone that absolutely everyone should read. If that isnt you, then what are you waiting for? Read Full Review
