    V and Walsh elevate this horror series to another level, exploring gambling addiction, free will and sacrifice. Lou is a tragic victim but is sucked in by a turn in his luck turning his back on friends, family and eventually life for a few fleeting seconds as a winner. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Dec 11, 2021

    The Silver Coin #7 is a rewarding read both at the macro and micro levels. On one hand, it is the classically tragic story of a gambler who almost reached the top, but has the world taken from under them. On the other hand, it's a story about the sacrifice of a man built up to the best and is cut down by a dark designer engineering fate. In both cases, the story and myth of the Silver Coin is a compelling reason to pick up this issue and to go back and read the previous installments, to experience Walshs stunning art and a cavalcade of talented script building to this point.

    What's most intriguing in The Silver Coin #7 is the nature of this hotel and how it ties into writer Ram V's ongoing examination of colonialism via the horror genre. Modern monuments and ancient cultures are set side-by-side in a setting that Walsh casts as both bright and sinister, using shadows to great effect from start to finish. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 8, 2021

    The premise of a cursed coin is deceptively seductive. The challenge lies in finding just the right angle on stories that allow the coin to take the center of the panel. Ram V gets really, really close to finding the perfect setting for the coin in the seventh issue of the series, but hes not quite there. The story of Lou is stylishly enjoyable in places, but like nearly every other issue in the series, it lacks the kind of framing that could have made it truly brilliant.  Read Full Review
