I love Amazon's comic book formatting. It really does a good job of letting you follow like you would a paper comic.

The story here is interesting and I am excited to read the next issue

I've been a long time fan of Ron Marz, the Witchblade and Artifacts series being some of my favorites. This comic is no exception to showcasing his talents. Picked it up at the Baltimore Comic Con, read it that night, and loved it. Awesome as well that it's free! So there's no reason not to give it a shot ;)

This is an excellent comic drawn from a compelling screenplay. The illustrations are dark and compelling, and they fit the story well. It provides a great introduction to the full story. I hope that the movie is made!

An interesting story, I will definitely look for the next release to see where it is going. Some new rehashes of old ideas, but still looks fun.

So when I heard that Amazon was getting into comic book publishing, I was very skeptical about their first offer into the scene. Boy, was I surprised! The story line in Issue 1 was well scripted, the characters became more intresting as the story progressed, and the inking and drawing in each cell were great! Though the setting and era have become a recent reference point in pop culture, the whole book was a good read with suspense and zombies sprinkled appropriately throughout the story arc.

I liked this story, and the means of delivery. The Cloud Reader app worked perfectly for me after I figured out how to use it with a comic and its associated panels. It's a story, set post Civil War, of a man trying to slay his demons, one at a time.

The comic book presentation was outstanding, art excellent, and I will get more of these as available.

It is clear to me that either Amazon contracted with Ron Marz to make this comic to show off the new comic capabilities of the new Fire devices, or Ron Mars is trying to leverage Kindle for something big. This comic is way too good for the free bin.

The premise should be interesting: Supernatural horror in the Civil War era. However, the writing is cliche, trite, and just downright bad. The illustrations are interesting, fitting well with the style, but they're not enough to save the book from the terrible writing. The characters are sterotypical at best, and crude at worst. Merrin is unreadable. It could possibly be salvaged with more time spent on character development, but the author seems to have no interest in taking that time. I read that they were considering making a movie of this, through Studio Amazon. I hope that they reconsider.
