    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Apr 20, 2018

    The book tackles some mature stuff, and deserves to be enjoyed by a readership that can go with the ebb and flow of the lead characters journey, some of which is funny, sad, touching and, at times, a little heart-breaking. Read Full Review

    'The Pervert' is great. It tackles hardships sincerely and emotively without ever fetishizing sadness, and its unique art style helps set it apart from the pack. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Hunter T. Patrick Apr 20, 2018

    The writing was strong and the story itself felt too disconnected, but it is one that needs that. This is a story needed for our time. Read Full Review

    I'm not quite sure how to end this review… clearly the comic is not for everyone. There are bound to be people who find it offensive and far too graphic. There will be those who might pick it up out of curiousity. Others might read it for a greater insight and some may even find a resonance with their own life. This is one person in the billions of others on our planet but it is a life shared and for those who like biographical style comics you may well enjoy this… as long as you aren't uncomfortable with topics of a sexual nature.

    Could have been good, but the art is shit and the dialogue is seriously lacking. The premise was decent and it could have been a really good look at what being a sex worker is really like but it focused too much on the actual sex and the author having a pity party for themselves throughout....yeah don’t buy this unless you like wasting money

    Honestly. I can not fathom how anyone can give a good score at this crap. Having reading it (thankfully i didnt had to pay for it), it is just horrible, from the story to the "art".

    Really, the story is not even interesting or moving. Is just awful. Now, i have no issue with histories about transexual people. I liked Fantastic Woman A LOT (more the direction than the actual
    acting though) but there is no redeemable features in this waste of paper.

    I reached this site wanting to review Silencer and add my honest critic, but seeing the
    "critic" score por this awful comic made me want to tell you: do not support this trash.

    PS: Hold on Snoopy, this offense to your image will never erase more
