Glitterbomb #1 Reviews!


Glitterbomb, my new Hollywood horror comic published by Image, launched on Wednesday and we’re already getting a ton of positive feedback from readers and retailers. Let’s see what reviewers thought of our premiere issue…

IGN: 9/10 “It only takes two pages for Glitterbomb #1 to sell itself as something wholly investing.”

Nerdist: 5/5 “Zub and Morrissette-Phan nail it. Glitterbomb #1 looks and reads great.”

Newsarama: 10/10 “With its creature-feature hook and its blunt focus on the dark things women are subjected to in Hollywood, Glitterbomb #1 is a triumph.”

Scream Magazine: 8/10 “Glitterbomb establishes itself as a story definitely worth following, especially as it veers so effortlessly between the beautiful and the profane.”

4 Letter Nerd: “Glitterbomb #1 is a captivating start to what’s sure to be a brutal and mysterious story.”

Adult Podcast For Kids: “I cannot recommend this book enough. A fantastic read.”

Adventures in Poor Taste: 9.5/10 “Strong character work outshines an almost equally strong sense of dread and unease”

Comics Grinder: “Glitterbomb provides a clever horror vibe as well as great biting social commentary.”

Critical Threat: “Farrah is one of the most instantly relatable characters I’ve read in comics, or any other media. I think it speaks to both Zub’s skill as a writer and Djibril Morissette-Phan’s talent as an artist.”

Daily Grindhouse: “this feels like the first installment of something very special indeed.”

Doomrocket: “Glitterbomb #1 rains horror and revenge onto the everything-is-beautiful Hollywood delusion to fantastic results. Highly recommended.”

Major Spoilers: 8/10 “Glitterbomb #1 makes a great first impression, with a strong story that overcomes some wobbles in the art, beautiful production values, and most of all, a hook that leaves me wanting more”

Metro News: “It’s a fascinating book, telling an important story about the way Hollywood devours women.”

Nerds on the Rocks: 8.5/10 “A key component into making Farrah a fully fleshed character in Glitterbomb #1 is the ability of Morissette-Phan to draw complex facial emotions.”

Nerdy Chatterbox: 9/10 “Mr. Zub’s story is intense and it grabs the reader’s attention right from the start. The artwork is first rate.”

Nothing But Comics: “Just as a single story, Glitterbomb #1 is about as good as it gets in terms of craft and enjoyment.”

Paste Magazine: “Zub and his artistic collaborators have plenty of directions to pursue, from the mythological to the social, leaving a body count along the way.”

Pastrami Nation: 9/10 “Image Comics gets it right once again as the drop a Glitterbomb on the industry. Zub, Morissette, and Russell have created something very different, very dark and very entertaining.”

Pop Culture Uncovered: 8/10 “I am curious to see where it goes from here.”

Pop Nerd TV: 10/10 “Even with the fantastical elements in the story, the struggle of a veteran actor/actress looking for work seems so real and makes for a very enticing tale”

Primary Ignition: “the issue really belongs to penciller Djibril Morissette-Phan and colorist K. Michael Russell. The sheer despair and hopelessness injected into Farrah make her almost immediately relatable as a character.”

Retcon Punch: “a confident and surprising first issue. Coming from such a young team of artists this is surprising but like the evil that infects Farrah, it’s exciting because the future is unknown.”

Reading With a Flight Ring: “This will surprise, thrill and entertain you in all the ways will leave you wanting more.”

Talking Comic Books: “Glitterbomb #1 dives head-first into the shallow world of LA’s fame-obsessed culture. It uses biting commentary to paint a grim picture of the daily life of a working actress.”

TM Stash: 9/10 “Glitterbomb is an amazingly well written story, an amazing tale from the very first panel!”

TorAthena: “A brilliant comic mixed with reality and intrigue.”

Ultimate Comics: “Even without the scary parts, this was going to be an amazing book.”

We The Nerdy: 9.5/10 “Glitterbomb #1 is a great comic that I fully expect to be the start of a great series.”
