"Simply a terrific comic book. For some, this issue may be nothing more than a battle among Elephantmen, but the underlying plot that this comic opens up rose this to the highest possible level. I can't recommend a comic book any more than this one. (5/5)"

"Must Read. Brutally intense and viscerally pleasing, this week's issue of Elephantmen marks a dark turn for the series, but continues to encompass the thought provoking characterization and themes that make the series such a brilliant work."

"Boo's art is full of unrestrained energy, practically exploding off the page as the clash of swords drenches the panels in viscera."
