Blubber1976 reviewed Southside #1 Nov 29, 2021
7.5

Despite several 80s action movie tough guy cliches and art that looks like it has jumped straight from the pages of a mid-90s Image/ Extreme Studios publication, Southside remains appealing due to a solid narrative structure, strong inks reminiscent of Art Thibert and beautiful colouring which pops off the page.

Mysterious and intriguing, with minimal exposition and all the better for it. Irvin's art, especially his character designs, are highly evocative of the period in which the story is set. Greatly anticipating the story that is set to unfold.
