    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Feb 6, 2014

    This is not to say that you shouldn't be reading The Private Eye, because you absolutely should. It's got an early David O. Russell feeling to it, as far as a heavy-handed metaphor that is heavy-handed because it wants you to live in it. The stakes in this book seem silly to us, but they feel real to the characters, and that's the kind of book that is a joy to read every time a new issue drops. Read Full Review

    There's some fantastic world-building going on, and every other part of the story runs as smoothly as you can hope for. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Skombie Apr 29, 2015

    This issue took the foot off the pedal. Literally. While it added a lot to the story, the tension and moments that were in the other issues just were missing in this issue. It wasn’t a terrible issue, it just didn’t strike the same cord as the others, and that’s why I’m giving it a 7 out of 10. Read Full Review

    Pretty good. Not much to say about it though. It's the only comic I read digitally. And perhaps because of this, it's a little harder for me to soak in. I don't know why, it's just not the same. There were some funny "historical" references. Madonna'a tomb, a King's of Leon shirt, stuff like that. A few interesting revelations as well.
