"It’s bloody brilliant! 4.5 out of 5” - Big Comic Page

"Jef’s artwork is classic noir” - Bounding Into Comics

"In my opinion Walter Hill is a solid 2 for 2 when it comes to comics so far. Titan also has a hit on their hands with their Hard Case Crime titles. If you haven’t dug into these yet you absolutely should, especially if you love crime/noir stories. The Hard Case Crimes imprint is one of the most underrated things in comics today." - Ain't It Cool News

"Very good [...] WOW did not seeing that coming." - LRM Online
