I really like the boundary pushing work that Robinson is doing these days and this is no exception. Decent art and compelling setup. I want to read more but I don’t know if this will work for a lot of people.

Ludicrous Speed ReviewsCircuit Breaker #1 (Image)

Ludicrous Speed ReviewsAnother Castle #1 (Oni)
Poorly written with decent art, this is, at best, a clichéd first issue. I’m not sure who this is for but there’s nothing new or engaging in this to make me want to read more. My advice to the author is: “don’t give up the day … Read More

All good things must come to an end. This book has run its course. It’s always skirted the 4th wall but this issue broke it too much and I’m out. Fun while it lasted.
