The South Bronx is on fire and a crooked cop can clear his debts if he helps it burn. But with each dirty deed, THE SILVER COIN gets hotter to handle. A new episode of the hit horror anthology from VITA AYALA, JOSHUA WILLIAMSON, RAM V, MATTHEW ROSENBERG, and MICHAEL WALSH is out this month.

    This issue is much more grounded in the horror that men do unto men, with a much smaller helping of supernatural cursing allowing the egotistical cop to be hoisted by his own petard. The facts behind the story are almost as horrific as the actual story and should be a stain on the soul of New York. Read Full Review

    Walsh delivers some beautifully detailed and brilliantly styled visuals to this issue. There are some great character moments that convey emotion, danger and darkness through the imagery. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 16, 2022

    Salome Luce-Antoinette closes out the issue with an illustration of a burning building in the Bronx. The "Bronx is Burning" afterword lends some poetic historical perspective on the era in which the story is set. It's a classy addition that gives the story an appealingly dark substance that goes beyond page and panel. It would be really cool to see this sort of thing become a regular feature at the end of every issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Feb 19, 2022

    With a stronger desire or reason for the coin to gravitate toward, this issue could have been another hit. Instead, its just a by-the-numbers issue that coasts on the excellent art from Walsh. The Silver Coin is still a great buy, and the benefit to the books structure is that the next issue will bring something new and exciting, hopefully blending the strengths of both this issue with the previous.
