1899, Yukon Territory. Nettie Bridger's desperate journey to the goldfields of the frozen north has ended in tragedy. But Nettie won't believe it. Can't believe it. Her son is alive -- somehow -- somewhere -- and she won't stop hunting until she finds him. The valley has its monstrous guardians, and the miners have their secrets, and in this crucible of gore and gold the flickering flame of a mother's love is barely enough to melt the ice.

    Nettie's search for her boy is at once tense, terrifying and admirable, while the players she encounters range from unearthly to hilarious. This is a quality comic book experience. Read Full Review

    Though I'm unsure of where this is going to go, I'm really enjoying The Rush. The book looks great with Gooden's artwork across the board and those covers are really striking and evocative just in the color design alone. The interiors are fantastic and I love the flow of the story, the expressiveness of the characters, and the surreal aspects that are creeping into it more and more here. Nettie's journey is definitely an intriguing one and one that I'm already feeling like I need to see brought to life with a good budget series to let all the details seep into it. I'm excited to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    Nettie Bridger is such a great character as is M.P. Nathan Gooden's artwork is just soooo good, I love it!
    The mysteries deepen and the monsters are plenty, but the writing on Bridger is most excellent, maybe she can survive these creatures that hunt in the cold, snow.

    The mystery in and around the disappearance of Nettie's son deepens in another great issue of The Rush. Spurrier has a way of tailoring his dialogue to the story that's among the very best in comics and he puts his full talents on display.

    The conversation between Nettie and the Inspector was packed with wonderful world building, and felt very realistic, despite the otherworldly horror lurking. It both built up the character of Nettie, showcasing her resilience and stubbornness while providing a real look at how rough life was for those on the frontier seeking gold. I can't wait to see what nightmares further unfold.
