    Visually, this is another standout issue for Peter Gross. The Dickens setting is even more impressive than Tom's world thanks to its old-school use of brush and ink. Gross' work is largely understated but highly effective as well. This series continues to wow me every month, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed it won't be going the way of Unknown Soldier and too many other worthy Vertigo titles lately. Read Full Review

    This is a great concluding issue for the arc. All the plot threads are dealt with and, with the exception of the Lizzie thread, in a more than satisfying fashion. It makes significant changes to the status quo and provides some great leads going into the next issues and arcs. This is not a great jumping on point as ideas introduced all the way back in issue #1 are considered, but it is awesome for those of us who have been along for the ride. Read Full Review

    This is by far the best Vertigo is offering at the moment. Pick up this series if you want to refire your love of comic books because that's what this book will do. It doesn't get nominated for the Eisner awards every year for nothing. I recommend this issue, but more importantly, I highly recommend this series. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Aug 13, 2010

    This is still a good series, but I felt a lot of anticlimax after reading this issue. On the other hand, it is still about as intelligently written and drawn as any comic on the market and that makes it hard for the issue to stink too badly. Read Full Review
