"A perfect follow-up that excels in all aspects of the craft. The cover, the plotting, the character work, the illustrations, the lettering, the overall design -- they all work in perfect sync to earn this issue the honor of Book of the Week and to make it a frontrunner for Single Issue of the Year."

"I know absolutely nothing about Elephantmen and any related works. Remarkably, the story is incredibly easy to get. This is how to do a one-shot comic."
, But Before I Kill You
"It's dark, it's frightening, it's deadly. I highly recommend this comic."

"Less the tale of one of the war's characters than the story of a character in the war, 'Yvette' traces the character's arrival at unabashed brutalism -- both a necessity for her to keep living and in many ways, the point where she stops living."
, Comics For Serious Readers
"The comic looks great, and ends with a last page both surprising and genuinely funny."
, Things I Like

"All-combat action from the days when giant talking animals fired guns and swiped swords at China's military across the disease-ridden ruins of Europe."

"Elephantmen is a surprising series, you should be picking it up!"
"This is a brutally harsh story, one that fits well into the mini-series, and Starkings does his usual excellent job giving us a character who is pushed to the brink and tries desperately to hold onto her humanity."
