In this twisted medieval noir, the Sheriff of Nottingham hunts a serial killer with a penchant for tax collectors. The Sheriff's investigation makes him the target of England's most nefarious power-brokers. That's to say nothing of the Merry Men, terrorists lurking amongst the trees of Sherwood, led by an enigma known only as "Hood."

    This is obviously not one for the kiddies, and it's probably going to piss some folks off, but I liked it. Nottingham #1 challenges idol worship and the long held practice of canonizing atrocious human beings in stories and song. It's well written, beautifully drawn, and engages the reader from the very first sequence. Well worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    NOTTINGHAM #1, available from Mad Cave Studios on March 10th, 2021, takes the Robing Hood legend and gives it a grim, bloody, complex facelift. The art pulls no punches in showing you just how rough this world can be, and every character is smart, calculating, and brutal in their own way. Read Full Review

    Shane Connery Volk perfectly complements the dark, gritty elements of the story with the art. The art is brilliantly stylized, full of action and brutal in its depictions of violence. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jake Palermo Dec 20, 2020

    Nottingham #1 could be the beginning of an interesting take on the story of Robin Hood, if the reader can take on grimdark fantasies. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Joe Bones Dec 31, 2020

    This March, David Hazan begins a new chapter in the Robin Hood mythos with Nottingham #1. One filled with murder plots, zealous intrigue, and an element of mystery. Although the pacing of this first issue was a little slow, it picks up toward the end and it finishes with an exciting conclusion. The ending left me wanting to know more about this version of Robin Hood's world. Volk's artwork hits a lot of high points but the low points, namely the level of detail put into the characters' faces, make it hard to stay completely engaged in the story. The world Volk draws feels real though, even when the character's faces look off. Despite my criticisms, this is a series you'll want to have on your radar, if not in your personal collection.

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Mar 6, 2021

    Although this is NOT a comic for everyone due to violence and blood, I encourage anyone over the age of 17 to read it. I really hope you give this book a chance, you're going to be very pleasantly surprised by both the idea and execution of this comic. This one's worth both your time and money. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Mar 21, 2021

    Writer David Hazan plays with the concepts behind these centuries-old characters, providing a wholly original re-imagining. It's dark and ominous while maintaining a pinch of the playful nature that has always followed the legendary outlaw, albeit a pretty bloody take. I'm curious as to where this one goes next.

    Damn!! What a badass first issue. Hazan,Volk, and Romano all knock it out of the park. I'm hooked! My first book from Mad Cave and definitely not my last. A great twisted take on the Robin Hood mythos. A must read, even if you don't like this genre check it out. If you also love blood and gore it's a must! This is rare for me but I give Nottingham a 10 out of 10. I look forward to issue 2 of this 5 issue miniseries.The line F@&@in Ginger was hilarious with a red head sis and brother. Read this book and you'll what I mean.

    The Mad Cave solicitations list made me belive it would be a serial killer tale, I was sadly wrong. But there are good points such the characters, they are all well established and interesting. The art is iregular, at times it is great at times it is not. The colours are good. I guess I should blame my thoughts on how the comic was marketed.
