    Titan Comics has quickly become one of my favorite publishers because they embrace new and exciting concepts. On top of that, they find gifted artists who have visionary talents that come through on the page. Cynthia Von Buhler's artistic talent expands into the comic book world and we are all better for it.

    While resisting the urge to say 'Buhler, Buhler' (fans of a certain 80's film will get it), I will say Cynthia von Buhler has hit the ground running with a lovely slice of 1920's mystery, and a book that has cult hit written all over it. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Tony Dillard Nov 13, 2017

    This first issue was quite interesting. I was a big fan of the short-lived Victorian mystery series Houdini and Doyle and was quite upset to learn it was cancelled. This story almost acts, unofficially of course, as a sort of closer to that TV show as the former friends and partners are now at odds with each other due to some sort of falling out.

    I didn't thinkMinky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini #1 would speak to me as much as it did but here we are with a stellar opening issue. The works of the talent left me engrossed in the narrative so much so that I can't wait to see where this goes from here. Read Full Review

    Hulking Reviewer - Kareem Ali Nov 12, 2017

    Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini #1 introduces enough elements to create an interesting start to the series. Minky's strong desire to succeed as a detective coupled with her traumatic past is a perfect fit in the world of illusions. There's the right combination of skepticism, ulterior motives but also a genuine desire to believe in spiritualists to give the story depth. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Doug Warren Nov 15, 2017

    I understand serial comics"we get pieces of the story in each issue, but this one just seemed so short. I felt like I was just about to get into the story and it stopped. Of course, leaving off where it did, it's ensuring I pick up the next issue, but if I continue to feel short changed like I did with this issue, I can see it getting frustrating fast!

    Overall, Minky feels like it's going to be something special: a standout in the large amount of Houdini material. With its pulp novel feel and its use of subdued, yet powerful twists, it's definitely something to keep an eye on. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Justin McCarty Nov 15, 2017

    This title has a lot going for it. With a couple more issues this story could really take off. This has been a hard review to score. I want to read more because I don't feel we've gotten all the components so far. Minky is a fun character, the art stands out, but the rest has a lot to overcome. This comic is off to a good start and I do recommend it to the mystery and hard-boiled crime fans. Read Full Review

    I loved the variant cover in the Previous catalogue. Yes I'm naughty deal with it ^^
    So I take this ongoing one the behalf of the cover. And ... I'm a little punished for it.
    Festival I have some trouble with the art inside ... A little difficult for my taste (Even with a nude woman in it - Mature Reading ^^)
    But I loved the fact she write a letter to Agatha Christie & meet Conan Doyle. I was a little lost with Conan Doyle speaking to her like she was her brother. At first I believe it was a magical tric, but in fact it seem that was a joke in view of the fact after he was concern for her (And not him). But that wasn't easy to tell.
    I become disinterested with the many (Too many) speech bubble, and the false spirit theat more
