  1. “There is a rhythm and completeness to this issue; the narrator always knows both what happened previously and what happened in the decades after, and the treatment of magic makes the story feel timeless and well-known.” Read Marykate Jasper’s whole review on Comic Book Resources

  2. “The writing is fantastic, it has wonderful art, and this is a very interesting new character which I recommend you find out more about.” Watch Lord Coyote’s whole review on the Lord Coyote 2000 YouTube Channel

  3. 4 out of 5

    “The themes of love, longing, and searching for one’s place in the world are universal to the human condition. The art by Jonathon Dalton is simple but appealing. It perfectly illustrates the story being told and has a charm that is completely evocative of the story’s setting. Utterly charming.” Read Bob Bretall’s whole review on Comic Spectrum

  4. “Dalton’s work here is rich with detail and kind of reminds me of a cross between the cartoony style of Weny Pini (co-creator of ElfQuest) and the lush watercolors of Jill Thompson… We need more female roles like this. This is good for comics. And it was really, really well executed.” Full review starts at 16:20 on episode 164 of the Two-Headed Nerd Comic Book Podcast

  5. The Legend of Bold Riley is a great modern approach to fantasy expectations, and I look forward to seeing more.” Read Johanna Draper-Carlson’s whole review on Comics Worth Reading

  6. 4 out of 5

    “As sword and sorcery short stories go, I find Bold Riley to be just about perfect. Each artist gives me the sensation of listening to well-known stories told by different storytellers. The only thing missing from the series at this point is a Pirate Queen to be Riley’s frenemy.” Read Erica Friedman’s whole review on Okazu

  7. “Bold Riley’s journey is among the more fascinating I’ve read recently, and I hope Leia Weathington will get to chronicle it for a long time to come.” Read François Peneaud’s whole review on The Gay Comics List

  8. “Each story is part of the larger continuity of Bold Riley’s journeys through various mystical lands, but they can also be read as stand-alone fables, so this issue is a perfectly fine place to start. Can’t wait to see what becomes of her in Issue 2!” Read Molly Brooks’ whole review on the ComiXology Tumblr

  9. “Writer Leia Weathington has an excellent grasp on this character as one part swashbuckler, one part slightly tragic and lovelorn figure.” Read Rob Clough’s whole review on High-Low
