    One thought on “Gutter Magic”

    1. A little too short for the world it was trying to create; it introduced a lot of interesting ideas but, as a four-episode miniseries, didn't have the room to effectively explore them. However, its smart dialogue and general fun make it a good, quick read for people who love wizards and urban fantasy.

    2. Not bad, not awesome. Didn't do great at having enough backstory to explain why you're supposed to like someone who's such an ass to those around him. Will likely read the next one to see how it goes, though.

    3. Like many urban fantasies it's okay. There are magical creatures, people are sarcastic, some group of people wants to kill our heroes. I didn't mind it but I didn't love it. It's pretty looking and steampunky

    4. This was well-executed with good art, especially the action scenes. It didn't strike me as particularly ground-breaking, but it was enjoyable. I'd definitely recommend it to fans of alternate steampunk histories. I think that thiw would be better served as a longer miniseries or an on-going comic. Perhaps there will be more.P.S. I might be the only one that this bugged, but it kind of annoyed me that the side-kick character was a goblin (aka a the equivalent of the POC sidekick :/ )Read in issue [...]

    5. I loved this comic. Well written, beautiful art, engaging story line. I wish there was more! I literally hounded my local comic book store for weeks trying to see if they could find me a copy of the last issue. I can't wait to grab the trade as well. I look forward to reading anything and everything by this writer in the future!

    6. Gutter Magic is one of those few works that I wish was longer. The foundation of some great world building is present, but it's not developed nearly enough in a four-issue miniseries. That having been said, what is there is a unique take on steampunk urban fantasy. I just wish there was more.
