    It is this diametric contrast between Rose and Drucilla which makes this title such an engaging piece of literature and sensational art, worthy of pushing us forward to anticipate each and every issue. While it may be Finch forging the way with her forceful gravitas of allowing two women to expose themselves by revealing their innermost desires and personalities, it is Guara and Farrell who project the audience into the world of Ttereve to envelope us within this stunning and inspiring tale of truth and perseverance. Two paths to a singular goal of domination or salvation, the world of Rose makes us want more even as the narrative ends, and while it may be satisfying to see each monthly chronicle end, the need for more pushes us forward to the future.

    Overall, I'm really enjoying the direction the story is taking, finding that things are gaining more depth as the narrative progresses. I'm also curious to see how this ritual will unfold for Rose, and how this will alter her future with Thorne. Read Full Review

    Rose #8 sees the creative team stumble by  rushing significant elements in each of their plot lines, both of which deserve an issue of their own to land as completely as they should. The result is an issue that, although the ideas underpinning things are strong and interesting, come across as too pat and rushed. The problems that marred Rose #8 for me were all structural, and if the creators had decided to stretch the events of this single issue across two different ones, I think they would have solved them all. Still, this feels like a minor bump, and the art continues to become stronger and more accomplished with each issue. Read Full Review
