Reviews on Gary Reed:

“While all the stories in this collection admittedly have a certain macabre  aspect to them, where Reed and his various artistic cohorts truly  succeed in this collection – and in making these stories matter – is in  the emotional investment they seemingly effortlessly pull out of the  readers.” - Dirk Manning from his foreword

“First and foremost, he is a storyteller….Gary loves to set stories against a historical background or with a character from literature and put his own unique and clever spin on them." - Newsarama

“Reed is always insightful and manages to remain true to himself no matter what genre.” - Comic Book Haven

"Reed is one of the most underrated comic writers around. He has the ability  to stay several steps ahead of the reader and never fails to deliver  several shocks and surprises." - The Comics Review

"Reed s a very literary comics writer, one with a very sound base in much of the classic literature that inspired comics. That often helps give  Reed's writing a real feeling of depth and power.” - Silver Bullet Reviews
