Things are working out pretty good for Stunted Growth's career, but they'll find a way to screw that up. Things aren't so hot for Brian Slade, but he's oblivious, and these are all Martin's problems anyway. Plus: don't miss this issue's background feature and Spotify playlist!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 8, 2019

    Success and failure play in a crisp narrative stereo feel that works impressively well this issue. The build-up to the end of the issue is punctuated by a fun couple of pages that have Rougvie writing the rough copy for a total evisceration of the doomed album by a fictitious music critic. As the issue ends, its already apparent that the album is bad. Its a nice little stylistic punctuation for Rougvie to go into detail on just HOW bad it is in the narrative text at the end of the issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Adrian Care May 12, 2019

    If Gunning for Hits real strength is how much it knows about the music industry than this issue is Samson. Rougvie really drills the reader with a lot more insider knowledge of the music industry. So salacious are the details were given from under this lifted veil that you wont even realize or mind that theres next to no action in this issue. You arent just reading a jam-packed comic that really isnt like anything else on the stands. With Gunning for Hits, youre getting a music lesson. A four-colored version of the best music documentary never made. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins May 8, 2019

    Gunning For Hits approaches the end of the arc like some last act in a documentary about the rise and fall of some once great artist. True to life it seems, except for the gun. Read Full Review
