    This is a solid first issue for Newbury and Hobbes. The world building is really well thought out and we get left with a wonderful cliffhanger to whet are appetites for what lies ahead in future issues. Read Full Review

    Anyway, I find this version of Newbury & Hobbes to be in the vein of Amelia Peabody and Phryne Fisher mysteries, if not quite as compelling as them so far. But if you like either or both of those, you will probably enjoy this series. Read Full Review

    A majority of this issue really is a lot of setup. It's trying to show you who are characters are, they way they interact, the society they live in, and provide a couple of antagonists. I think if there was more focus on just the mystery we were dropped in at the beginning the pacing may have been better. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Sep 12, 2018

    There is no doubting the talent on show in this comic book, as equally there is no doubting the various influences that are obviously on show. Fans of either the novels, the Doctor or Holmes should find enough going on in here to quench their thirst. For others, the similarities to the influences may just cause a little bit of disillusionment or disappointment. The latter feelings would be a shame as it is clear that Mann and Boultwood enjoy this genre so much. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Sep 13, 2018

    The issue ends with a proper cliff hanger, which would certainly have left me invested if I had not already converted by that point. A very enjoyable read, and I'm anticipating the next issue's release. Read Full Review

    Overall, the pace of the book felt really slow, and it actually caused me to take the first 4 days of the reading cycle to read this, which caused me to be behind in my reading the rest of my pulls. It's not bad, it's just not for me, not right now. Read Full Review
