    So, um, yeah. Um. I don't even... I don't know what I just read. This was too confusing to be interesting and maybe this shouldn't have been released in issues but in a volume, to lessen the confusion.

    I really like the art work! The story was kinda patchy with some really interesting elements with very benign filler. But to be honest that's true of a lot of first issues of comics. Probably would have given this 3.5 if that had been an option

    The premise was interesting and hooked me. The writing was wordy and needed tightening, and the art was fine.

    Good Woowoo?, or Bad Woowoo? This is just the first issue of a much longer series, so as you might imagine it's long on set up, character introductions, and unresolved hints and foreshadowing. It's about magic, mysticism, multiple planes of existence, the other side, Celtic mythology, and who knows what else. On the one hand there was a lot to like in the larger atmosphere and vibe realm, and what we saw of the main characters was interesting. On the other hand there is a lot of walk-about monolog Good Woowoo?, or Bad Woowoo? This is just the first issue of a much longer series, so as you might imagine it's long on set up, character introductions, and unresolved hints and foreshadowing. It's about magic, mysticism, multiple planes of existence, the other side, Celtic mythology, and who knows what else. On the one hand there was a lot to like in the larger atmosphere and vibe realm, and what we saw of the main characters was interesting. On the other hand there is a lot of walk-about monologuing and epiloguing about magic and mysticism that felt more like crystal healing than plot or coherent narrative. The art is along the same lines, but that's understandable. The bits that carry the more basic lines of the narrative are crisp, straightforward, and well executed. The big splashes, dreamy sequences, and mystic-psychedelic bits are understated but still catchy and more effective for being so understated and freewheeling. I mean when satyr-demons and nymphs dance in the woods you can almost feel the heat from the bonfire. All of that suggests that this could go somewhere, or it could just reach a talky and confusing deadend. Based on the art and the characters this seemed interesting enough to follow, but I'm thinking just a first date at this point, with no other commitment. (Please note that I had a chance to read a free ecopy of this book without a review requirement, or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

    I'm not totally sure what happened in this first issue. I liked the art. I felt like I understood what was going on pre-car crash and a bit at the birthday party, but other than that it was a bit confusing jumping around. It seems to center a lot on 9/11. Overall it was confusing but has piqued my interest.

    A girl is born for a life of strangeness. Color and black and white artwork. Image freebie. Strange magic is changing and sometimes killing young girls. I think it's herne the hunter?

    Fantasy comic series about the Fey - very good so far This is a review of the first four issues. Rebecca Kumar discovers her supernatural background in this fantasy series taking place in the world of today. She encounters a few interesting characters, both benevolent and malevolent. The story is definitely engaging and the artwork is clear and detailed. I enjoyed this series and hope to read the next volume. Recommended.

    The art was really good, the story not so much. I'll read the next one to see if it gets better.

    Holy shit, this is insane! There is so much happening in a few of the panels and I'm not sure where to look and where not to look. Because there is a lot of images about and from a cut that is having some weird sex stuff going on. Then surprise! Pregnancy!? I guess you can just transfer that whole carrying another human to another woman now- a- days (I'm kidding guys!).  Then we are at years later where the child is grown up, another accident happens-she lives, then another year goes by and on h Holy shit, this is insane!

I guess you can just transfer that whole carrying another human to another woman now- a- days (I'm kidding guys!).  Then we are at years later where the child is grown up, another accident happens-she lives, then another year goes by and on her birthday (which she is not answering calls from her moms). She gets her heart torn out and left on a dirty bathroom floor. Well first off, I want to say the art style and colors, along with the story are amazing. But now, lets really get into it- I have so many questions that I need to have answered, and of course this issue ended on a cliff hanger. My main questions for the time being -Does the surprise baby girl, who is grown(ish) up now have some type of powers? -What happened to her real parents? -What was up with the sex cult thing? -What accident happened that made her distant from her moms now?  -And why did that guy rip out her heart???!!! All in all, I can't wait to read more of this series. I'm pretty much chopping at the bit for more.

    I wish there had been something here that had resembled a story. The art was magnificent, but, geeze. I don’t know what I was supposed to take away from this. Seeing the cover for next month’s issue, yeah, I’m really worried that there is going to be a lot of masculine “protecting” heroes in this story where the creator justifies it by saying they’re representing women by having a character with not one but THREE moms.

    This was....really strange, I'm not entirely sure what happened, the story is pretty confusing. The coloring is fantastic. I don't know if I'm going to continue this, might wait for the trade, I'll have to wait and see after a few issues but it does have something interesting there I just wish the writing was little less all over the place.

    Oh wow. This was kind of amazing. I mean, I basically have no idea what's going on, but I love it. It's beautiful and mysterious and scary and intriguing. The art is lovely, I love LOVE the color use once you hit the middle. The random page in the middle...what is that?? This hooked me, quickly. I started following the instagram (not something I do.) I can not wait to find out more.

    The artwork is decent, but so far the storytelling and characters lack anything concrete to latch onto. What little story we're given was just bizarre happenstance situations during different time jumps.

    At this point the story is just getting off its feet and you really don't know what's going on. The art is pretty. I like how the panels from the color-blind girl's point of view are in black and white. Clever.

    Although it was a bit confusing at the beginning, I loved how the story developed and how the characters behaved. I may not understand everything that is going on, but I OH SO LIKE wjere this seems to go!

    The art is very good but the writing is not.
