Reviews

"A brilliantly original concept."

Newsarama

"A smart, raw and relevant spin on the superhero genre."

MTV Geek

"Like only the best parts of Watchmen—a social analysis that exceeds the medium of comics, easily the equal of Dostoyevsky or Dickens"

PopMatters

“It’s the AIDS epidemic as an X-Men book … and it’s brilliant.”

Comic Bastards

"Nasty, dirty and oh-so-wonderfully-wrong – and a hell of a lot of fun."

Comics Bulletin

"An edgy, moody feel, with plenty of mystery
and fear in the air."

Danica Davidson, CNN, Los Angeles Times

"As over-the-edgy as it gets. This is the stuff I want!”

Broken Frontier

"Rating: 5/5 – Highly original with great dialogue, I can’t wait to see what happens next!"
