"Both dense and varied... offering anintriguing glimpse into a world where magic and finance are intertwined. It'sboth right in line with Hickman's past work and wholly unique."--IGN

"Both huge and relatable. The hookthreads a bizarre and long-standing conspiracy into the world of finance, rootedin a visceral supernatural dimension, but a welcome humanity gives that conflicta relatable core." --PasteMagazine

"Demands every fiber of yourattention, The Black Monday Murders is a bit out of step with current titles andthat makes it that much better." --Fangoria
