Anthony Dominguez of Pulp Fiction Online reviews Black Harvest #1 and #2. Here's what he had to say:
The Basics- Josh Howard’s newest outing, since completing Dead@17. Zaya Vahn is the main
character, a sexy (like Nara, the suicide girls look) a teenager who was abducted 3 years ago, and
mysteriously returned, slightly changed. Changed how? Uhm, that’s hard to explain. Is she good? Is
she bad? What secrets do the townsfolk hold about her disappearance? Who held her and
tortured her? Why is she back? This is a good old sci-fi horror story with some religious
undertones. Well written, with a slew of interesting characters. The pace is well maintained through
the second issue, the story becomes more engrossing and confusing. More questions, less
answers, and more Zaya. That’s enough for me.
The Art- Back to basics. The style that catapulted Dead@17 and Howard into the limelight is back.
Sharp, sexy, violent and all at once innocent. The backgrounds are solid, the coloring is clean, and
the reason we are all here…the characters are what we have come to expect, strikingly simple.
Emotion and story are conveyed through the simplest brush strokes and details. Zaya is frail,
innocent, violent, sexy, scared and strong all at once. She’s the preachers daughter, the hot one
with the tattoo’s and bad (or good depending on if your male of female) reputation.
The Verdict- Hot violent females win me over every time, good or bad, I love them all. So will you.
