    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 21, 2015

    It's a strong work that's finding its voice and direction overall and I can definitely see this being a really engaging overall work when all is said and done. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje May 18, 2015

    A slick, sexy, switch your brain off kind of comic. Here's hoping some substance crops up in the next few issues to go along with all that style. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chris White May 14, 2015

    All in all, the story is relatively generic but it is no worse than others that take inspiration from Philip K. Dicks back catalogue. If youre looking for originality then maybe this isnt you but if you are looking for true artistic vision and style, give it a go. It isnt terrible but it isnt great. I will not give up on the series. It is clear that Jon Tsuei and Eric Canete can write because they managed to create a world with their own characters and build on it for a run of eight comicsnot everyone is capable of this kind of feat.

    Comic Bastards - Austin Lanari May 13, 2015

    In that moment the story kind of betrayed itself and pulled back the curtain on another one of my issues with the first two issues: I don't care about Rain and yet everyone in the story is focused on suggesting that I should. Even in this small moment when she takes down her friend, a bunch of people become fixated on Rain, as if you would give a shit about some random drunk person lashing out randomly like on any other Friday. The world ofRun Love Killis a world singularly built, even in small story beats, around this one person who I have no reason to care about beyond her awesome character design. I get that we are saving the truth of her character's situation for later in the eight issues, but let's be real: I'm not going to keep reading just to find something out. And if I am–if I am reading your comic just because I want to make sense of it–then I am not reading because I am entertained by the story, or because I have some kind of stake in the characters.
