    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Mar 9, 2013

    Frankly I found this story to be fantastic. It’s the perfect length and has a great pacing to it. What’s even better is that there is absolutely no reason to continue the story. Sure the world is interesting, but I get the impression that Cloonan has told the story that she wanted to tell and that’s what made this one-shot a rich read. This story is one of those prime examples of what makes the medium so great and in a way proves why Submit is important to the comic industry. Cloonan already has another standalone story on Comixology entitled Wolves that I’ll be reviewing later, but I really hope to see more work like this from her on the platform. Read Full Review

    The comic is another great example of Cloonan's talent and again makes you question why she hasn't been given a greater spotlight as a writer. Read Full Review

    I thought this was masterful. It leaves you wanting more, but unfortunately it's a one shot. If you like "Done in one" comics like this then I highly recommend the other 2 stories in this series, the first being Wolves and the other is called Demeter.
