Well, it looks like our train-jumping hobo boys have finally seen where the wheel meets the ground. This issue, we learn about the difference between bums and hobos, why Jackson is so good at fighting, and what the Literal Devil wants with our Hobo Hero. Also, yeah, as always, there's fighting. HOBO FIGHTING.

    What I like most about Rock Candy Mountain is that it's fun and breezy and light-hearted but also kind of deep and a weird character study. Plus, it's got great art and colors. So, basically what I'm saying is that my favorite thing about this series is literally everything. Read Full Review

    On the whole though, Rock Candy Mountain is a swell comic that is, by and large, just really unique. The setting is rare–one thats probably been done before but not in anything Ive seen recently. I like the characters, I adore the artwork for its cartoon simplicity, and Im eager to see where it goes. Read Full Review

    Yet again Rock Candy Mountain continues its brilliance! With this issue we start to get a little more info on Jackson's life, what exactly he is looking for and what deals he made along the way. All while the fuzz and the literal Devil inch ever closer in catching our Duo on the rails! The writing and pacing is perfect this issue giving us little snippets of info along the way while keeping the mystery of Jackson still VERY intriguing! The art fits this story so well as it has all three issues so far. The colors really stand out for me this issue. They seem a tad bit brighter with a lot of yellows & reds while it still maintains its dust bowl setting perfectly the added color makes this issue pop a little more! Overall this is a fantastic series and I cant wait to see what is coming down the tracks!

    I liked this issue enough to rethink my decision to drop this title. The battle with the devil is classic stuff, and I enjoyed the way Jackson sticks to his hobo morality. An unusual book, but amusing enough for me to stay.
