    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 24, 2021

    Ernie's gradual awakening into being something more than a selfish piece of human garbage has been a bit of a struggle. Early-on in the series, he's come across as the kind of comic relief he's meant to be evolving from, but the fifth issue has him coming to a deeper understanding of the nature of the world, and he's beginning to meet some of his potential. The fifth issue in the series manages a really sharp balance between drama, action, comedy, and adventure. Read Full Review

If you want to catch up, be on the lookout for the trade paperback Cocaine Finger. That tells you all you need to know right there! Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Feb 23, 2021

    A great conclusion to the first chapter whilst leaving plenty of unanswered questions to keep readers coming back next month. Ernie is a terrible human being but is slowly winning me over and fans of an underdog tale will enjoy this series. It's James Bond meets XXX meets Trainspotting which seems like a crazy blend but it's really working. Read Full Review
