    Although the art took me until the end of the issue to get used to and appreciate, this has quickly become one of my favorite fantasy-based comic stories. Whether you're a long-time fan of the genre or looking for something new to read, you'll find yourself immersed in the world of Athea, rooting for Shayde Whisper and following her journey.

    Geek'd Out - Cameron Kieffer Mar 8, 2023

    Stylistically, the book is all over the place and its better for it. The opening prologue is devoid of any color save black and gray. The sketchy line art and streaky inks create the impression the pages exist in an old, pencil-smudged sketchbook. Everything and everyone seems to have texture and personality, and the rough look just makes it all the more enjoyable. I liken it to having a talented friend force their self-published comic upon you – its rough around the edges, and the world seems familiar but the ideas are sound. Its far from perfect but theres potential and you want to see where the story goes. Read Full Review

    So, the story itself tries to play coy with plot points clearly spelled out in the solicitation copy, but the resulting issue still manages to keep a little bit of mystery and ably showcase our very likeable protagonist. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 7, 2023

    Stoneheart #1 is a solid start to this action fantasy world. The lead character is established well to put over why she is so key to the world Emma Kubert constructed. With improvements to the artwork Stoneheart will only grow better. Read Full Review
