With Silence & Co., the new, 176-page, black and white original graphic novel, on shelves this May, reviews have been pouring in.
Dustin Cabeal over at ComicBastards.com gave the book5/5, calling it “ a hitman concept that has one of the coolest elements you’ll ever read”, and adding “I enjoyed this book so much that I will likely read it again after marathoning through several films”.
Gregg Hatcher over at CBR’s Good Comics blog gave the book a “Buy” recommendation, raving “enormously compelling – it was almost impossible to put down once I’d started. It’s very tough and cool, in much the same action-movie, hard-R tradition as other crime comics like 2Guns or The Losers”.
Minhqua Nguyen over at Weekly Comic Book Reviews awarded the book an excellent “A-”, writing “Pulp at its finest. A terrific sample of the genre, proving that you can have sex, drugs, and violence in a story and still keep it classy.”
Carl Doherty at ShelfAbuse.com writes “[Gur] Benshemesh clearly appreciates and understands the crime comics of decades past, and this exhilarating modern-day take on those comics knows exactly when to dial up the violence, exploitation and machismo without ever asking readers to jettison their brain”.
