July 18, 2013 – Jorge Solis of Bloody Disgusting reviews To Hell You Ride #5, saying, “The final installment delivers a highly satisfactory and noteworthy conclusion. This is a knockout collaboration of story and art brilliantly put together. From its expressive prose to its awe-inspiring imagery, there is no reason why you shouldn’t buy the To Hell You Ride finale.” Jordan North of Comic Bastards adds: “Top notch writing is back by Lance Henriksen and Joseph Maddrey who manage a ton of cool little bits of dialogue and plot [...] Art also is wonderful with the bleak landscape of Telluride contrasted with all of the bright coloring of the effects of the spirit world [...] At the end of the day this conclusion does not disappoint.”
July 9, 2013 – John Kenneth Muir reviews the final issue of To Hell You Ride (available on July 17th)!

Damn near pitch perfect, beautiful and intriguing work and masterful storytelling. Rare is it that I have come across something so original and it’s for good reason—every book simply couldn’t be this good– but, when stars align and the comic gods are pleased you will occasionally get something that it would be irresponsible to miss. This is that comic book.”

That’s more like what I would rather leave you with than tell you about the final act. Believe me, if you get on this journey, you’ll see.”

Their genre film backgrounds deliver something new and different to the comic world that is reminiscent of the comics of the 60’s and 70’s that just don’t come along any more.”

November 8, 2012 – Pop culture historian and critic John Kenneth Muir reviews the first issue of To Hell You Ride: “What I enjoyed so much about the comic’s inaugural chapter is that even though it moves from one era to another, and offers meaningful commentary on our species on quite a few topics, it also feels admirably consistent and coherent… There’s a powerful voice at work here.”
