    The Rush remains a thrilling horror comic as the curse haunting its setting unfurls the full extent of its terror revealed in monstrous creatures and terrible violence. Yet what distinguishes The Rush #6 is the elegiac beauty it possesses. Read Full Review

    The Rush is a strong series that delivered issue after issue. Spurrier's done some really solid work in this kind of supernatural area before but this one, especially with Gooden and Duke's artwork, just felt elevated in a way to me. The richness of the artwork brought the characters and story to life beautifully and those small moments really drive home the emotion of events and what the characters are going through. This is a really good book that tells a complete tale that will be memorable for a lot of reasons, which makes it very easy to recommend as a whole. Read Full Review

    Fantastic finish.
    Spurrier continues to be a master of folk-horror and folk-tales as he combines them with his comic-book writing. In THE RUSH, while it takes a conclusion I could gather earlier in the series (and in now how other works of his turn out) it was still a satisfying and emotionally draining conclusion to a creepy, western horror tale.
    Nathan Gooden's artwork is also top tier, like what a gift to have gotten this mini from the two of them. And while I'll miss Nettie's character, likely my favorite character from any indie comic this year, I look forward to re-visiting this story in the future.

    Spurrier and Gooden deliver on the promise of the first 5 issues. Crisp dialogue, clean lines and satisfying resolutions abound. Spurrier delivered some heart wrenching moments between Nettie and the rest of the cast. The scene with M.P. in particular was crushingly effective in it's depiction as we go from one panel with a gun to another featuring startled deer, moved by the sound of gunfire. Highly recommended for anyone who's a fan of westerns.
