    AIPT - Alexandra Iciek May 5, 2021

    Allor and Tucker are on their way to writing a triumph of a series with Hollow Heart. Issue #3 is a deeply layered, intelligent study of subjectivity, justice, and trauma. Between the art and the writing, every detail feels intentional. Much like the installments before it, Hollow Heart #3 is an outstanding single-issue -- one that will inevitably become part of something bigger. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Cesareo Garasa May 12, 2021

    Writer Paul Allor must be given credit in imbuing his story with a sense of poetry, a sense of elegant synchronicity that elevates the title from what it could have ultimately been without his ample consideration: an obtuse misunderstood-monster love story and Paul Tucker's lovely art and coloring is both hazy and clear-lined. The final few panels of Hollow Heart #3 are a great dramatic representation of a man trapped in his own isolation and contemplating either powerlessness or salvation from it. Read Full Review

    Hollow Heart continues to keep me interested in what it's doing but at the same time, I'm not exactly sure what it's doing. I want more on EL and his situation with the whole who, what, where, when, and especially why. But I'm enjoying seeing this all taken from the perspective of Donnie and Mateo while they deal with their own issues and attempts and dealing with life. It's got an interesting look to it and a weird kind of energy I can't quite pin down that draws me back to see more of it. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 1, 2021

    Hollow Heart adds some more layers to this intriguing story with this issue. It changes the game by taking EL out of the prison he's known for ages. This opens the door to a ton of new possibilities to explore these characters further. This is what EL has wanted for some time, but what will he do when he gets it? Read Full Review
