    See, the thing about making the characters misery so unrelenting is that it can make the comic a bit difficult to read every month. As de Campi herself admitted, comics are usually about escapism and No Mercy offers anything but. Some readers will probably be turned off by that fact, but theres something to be said for making a piece of fiction feel inescapably, painfully real. The book may be challenging, but its rewarding and Ill take that over fights with supervillains any day. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Asa Giannini Dec 9, 2015

    The one bright spot in No Mercy #5 is Anthony who continue to be a hugely interesting character. Having a deaf character lends him a specificity the others lack, and in the first four issues he has proved to be the most talented at surviving and thinking on his feet. Sadly, he is given the same amount of focus as every other character and cannot hold the whole book together. This one character aside, unless watching vapid teenagers succumb to infection and predatory animals is your thing (no judgment here), there is increasingly little to recommend No Mercy.
