    Even though they both rose to prominence working together on crime comics, it's been a while now since Rucka and Brubaker have been mentioned in the same breath for the quality of their most recent work. I have no doubt Stumptown will change that. Watch out Criminal – there's a new player in town. Read Full Review

    I used to be sad that we weren't getting any more "Queen & Country" for the duration, but "Stumptown" is more than mollifying any sadness I once had. Between this and his Batwoman stories, Rucka's re-positioning himself as an author to keep an eye on. "Stumptown" is fantastic, pure and simple. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jan 27, 2010

    Once again, Matthew Southworth offers up some convincing, realistic artwork that suits the slightly edgy tone of the plot and characters. The grittiness he brings to the visuals is reminiscent of Michael (Daredevil) Lark's work; I suspect it won't be long before we see Southworth's linework bringing the adventures of a vigilante hero or two at DC or Marvel. He's clearly a skilled storyteller. I also appreciated the text piece he provides in the back of the book, as he shares a great deal of insight into the creative process and how he captures such a genuine look in the characters, backdrops and "props."

    The opening issue was great, and with #2, Greg Rucka continues to deliver a wonderful crime comic. The writing is sharp, witty and delivers individual voices to each of the characters. Matthew Southworth's artwork is also strong, although perhaps not quite up there with Michael Lark's work on Gotham Central (which it is very reminiscent of).

    Everyone who likes crime comics should read Stumptown.
