    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 26, 2023

    The first issue engages the reader through a sense of mystery and weirdness. So much of what drives the action from page to page lies in the foundations of that mystery. There is a little bit of intriguing drama with Deb. She seems like a truly interesting character. However, that might not be enough to keep this series feeling novel. A series based in mystery can rather quickly turn out to be dull in full view. The first issues great. Andolfo is going to have to tread carefully in the issues to come. Its a fun story so far, but occult and gore and family drama...could turn unpleasantly silly really, really quickly. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Cameron Kieffer Jul 26, 2023

    Together, Andolfo and Braga have managed to produce a strange, yet beautiful comic with a lot of potential that gets bogged down by too many ideas. With any luck, future installments will shed more light on the proceedings so readers will have something to latch onto. Until then,Purr Evilwill likely leave you grasping for something thats not yet within reach. Read Full Review

    Purr Evil #! is an interesting experience to say the least. The story is great, however, I do wish they went into more details about the main characters' previous lifestyles. I also hope the two lovebirds get a happy ending.

    I'm missing Mirka Andolfo's superb artwork, but this issue still stands without it. This seems to be playing with the trope of metal being satanic, but there is a lot left to be revealed yet. Plus the main character looks like Ashnikko

    Mirka Andolfo is the epitome of an OK writer inside of strong artist. I honestly don't know why she doesn't just team up with a writer who could take her plots and make them more cohesive and interesting. That's not to say an artist shouldn't or couldn't be writer but some times you gotta know where you're deficiencies are and play to your strengths.

    I think the plot of a mother/daughter duo that functions as a monster slaying team with dark magic involved could definitely be a good read but the underlying subplot of romance thrown in PLUS the mother and daughter's obsessive neighbor who's something of a creep is three too many ideas squeezed into a small 24 page format.

    Andolfo writes for the trade. If you're familiar more
