    Zero Chapter 15may be the most divisive and defining issue of the series yet. Some readers may be reminded of Grant Morrison during the issue, and the contrasting opinions people have on his work as are just as likely to be present here. It's likely to be a confusing read for some on their first, second, or even third time through and many of the literary and cultural references could easily go over the heads of anyone not particularly well versed in literature. Still it's hard not to appreciate Kot's literary wit and his unique voice that has only grown more distinct as he blurs the line between reality and fiction. Read Full Review

    An otherworldly and very confusing issue but still enjoyable. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Boronia Winchester Mar 20, 2015

    I have to admit, the first time I read this issue I felt like I was lost at sea. I had to read it three times before I felt like I had a grasp on what was happening. If I were judging this book solely on ease of comprehension, I'd have to give it a poor score just by default – luckily, a soft easy read was hardly what Zero was aiming to achieve with this issue. What it was trying to achieve was delivering a complex, meaningful narrative, and boy did it succeed. I may have had to read the issue three times to understand it, but on each read I picked up on a different facet of what was being conveyed. I still have questions, andI expect I'll have to waituntil the last issue this July to have them all answered, but in the meantime it's left me with a lot to think about until then. Read Full Review

    One thing is certain about Zero as a series: people who appreciate creativity and innovation should absolutely be on this journey. Readers will be hard pressed to point to another work in publication that overshadows what is being done here. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Mar 17, 2015

    Zero is a series that I personally don't see changing very soon, as though it's shown faint signs in the past, the constant jumping from one place to another proves a little unproductive for the plot. The concept of this issue on the other hand will divide readers, as though I'm very much on the fence, leaning more to the negative side, there's bound to be some that'll love it, and others that'll hate it.
