Manny Gomez had high praise for the first issue. – “No doubt this is a GORGEOUS book. Sara Pichelli is one of the premier comic artists, and she’s just excellent here. Pichelli’s pencils are loose, yet still clean and crisp. There’s an energy to them when needed, but static images still hold a lot of pause and stillness. But they all feel immediate as if they were just put to paper seconds ago.” Read his full review here.
