    Basically what I'm saying is that not only is Stray Bullets the only crime comic you should put on your pull list and make sure to pick up every month, it might be the only comic period you should pick up. It might not always have intergalactic action (although sometimes it does), or violent/graphic murder (although sometimes it does), but it's the only book I can name that consistently takes the outskirts and outsiders of the human experience and makes them into real, relatable people who can uplift us, the readers, and break our hearts in two.

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter Jul 2, 2014

    This issue was timeless in the way it was told, touching on a lot of the discord of the formative years, first love, etc. The best part of this issue for me, however, was the happy ending that we haven't been trained to expect in this title. While a complete tale in it's own right, issue #4 feels like it is another layer of braiding in a story that is getting increasingly complex. Next month is sure to drag me in just a little farther.

    Stray Bullets is one of the best looks at life on the shelves, this is completely down to Lapham’s ability to delve into the psyche of his characters and bring out both their light and dark sides. This Issue is the best of the run so far. It deals with the joy and hope of our young star crossed lovers in an almost Romeo and Juliet manner and following in the great bard’s footsteps everything is far from peaches and cream.
