    The horror genre is overfilled like a community swimming pool, and at times makes for a daunting task trying to look for a good horror story that adds refreshment and brings something new or at least a new way of telling a familiar story. This is where Mirka Andolfo shines like a thousand suns. Her ability to surround Lady Hellaine with intrigue, mystery, and a splash of psychological horror makes Mercy a must-read! Read Full Review

    I love Andolfo's works so I'm really hopeful it has a strong group of fans behind it and I'll be in the second wave when the collected editions can deliver something that will work better for my reading needs. It's such a gorgeous book it really deserves a big audience for it. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey Jun 25, 2020

    Overall, I still quite enjoy this series, but I want to see more from it. The story feels like it's mirroring Lady Hellaine itself. A mask of refinement barely holding back the horrors underneath. With three issues left Mercy #3 threatens to leave much unsaid or, worse, said all at once instead of at an even pace. I still look forward to the next issue, and am too invested in the central mystery to move on. I just hope that the next issue takes a little more time to really let loose, because we can all see that Hellaine is barely keeping it together. Read Full Review
