    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 16, 2021

    March takes his time, allowing the story to develop with short bursts of exposition shooting out of casually playful visual phantasm. There isnt much going on here, but there doesnt have to be. Its just enough emotional rendering to cast a post-suicidal mood in breathtaking detail. There is a moment after a failed or abandoned attempt at suicide that feels positively serene. The living can only see that mood from the realm of the living. March casts that exact same mood quite vividly from a whimsical post-life perspective. Its deliciously dreamy. Read Full Review

    While Karmen #2 lacks the expository dialogue found in issue #1, it makes up for it with its visually striking art and innovative page layouts. An ethereal and quirky narrative about heartbreak and the human condition, curiosity is right around the corner as we lead into the next issue. Read Full Review
